A285 Duncton update: Picture reveals scale of work involved in complex road repair

Despite the complexities.... highways officers and contractors continue to make good progress

 
The scale of work involved in the complex road repair at the closed section of the A285 at Duncton is revealed

Release date: 23 November 2021

The scale of work involved in the complex road repair at the closed section of the A285 at Duncton is revealed in our picture.

Despite the complexities, which include a damaged carriageway with culverts spanning beneath it, highways officers and contractors continue to make good progress. Work has included gabion baskets being positioned at the foot of the bank to strengthen the overall integrity of the structure.

The section of road, just south of the Seaford College entrance, has been closed for safety reasons following a slippage of earth over a culvert that spans beneath the carriageway.

Subject to unforeseen factors that can delay any construction project, such as severe weather, the ambition is for the road to be reopened before Christmas.

Businesses in Duncton, Petworth and the surrounding areas have been able to open as usual throughout and will continue to do so. 

Signed diversions are in place. Please keep up to date online via: https://one.network and on Twitter @WSHighways
