Release date: 22 October 2020

A footway is to be built along a section of the B2139 in Amberley to improve pedestrian access and road safety near a playing field.

The path will replace the grass verge on the northern side of the road, between Newland Gardens and the playing field. The improvement scheme was suggested by Amberley Parish Council and supported by the local county councillor.

Works are scheduled to take place between Monday 16 November and Friday 4 December, subject to factors such as severe weather.

Two-way temporary traffic lights will be in place on the B2139 (Turnpike Road) for the safety of both the public and workforce. There will be some delays, so road users are asked to please allow extra time for their journeys.

A county council spokesperson said: “We apologise for any inconvenience and will do all we can to minimise this as much as possible.”

The contractor for the scheme is Landbuild Ltd and the improvement project will cost approximately £25,000.
