Release date: 6 October 2020
A corroded bridleway bridge over the A280 Angmering Bypass is to be removed soon for a complete overhaul.
Over a 12-week-period, the bridge will be lifted by crane to an adjacent car park, stripped back, with all corrosion removed, and repainted. The bridleway will be closed, with the car park out of bounds for the duration of the project. A diverted route for pedestrians will be displayed but there is no suitable route for equestrians.
The A280 will be closed overnight on October 12/13 while the bridge is lifted out of position, with another closure – to be announced later – when the renovated structure is lifted back.
During the road closure a fully signed diversion will be in operation for motorists.
The cost of the essential maintenance project will be approximately £120,000.
The contractor for the scheme is Landbuild Ltd.
