West Sussex Highways is taking action in response to concerns raised about noise from traffic-calming measures in a road in East Grinstead.
The slopes of 'raised tables', installed last year in West Street, will be extended so vehicles make less noise when passing over them.
A West Sussex Highways spokesperson said: “Some concern was raised by residents and councillors regarding noise from the traffic-calming measures. These works are intended to address this without having too great an effect on the speed reduction that has been achieved.”
Work is due to start on 21 October. West Street will be closed between Queensway and Queens Road junctions for the duration of the works and a diversion will be in place via Beeching Way.
“We apologise for the inconvenience but will do all we can to keep any disruption to a minimum. Access for residents will be maintained.”
The amendments will cost approximately £11,000.
The work is expected to last for four days, subject to factors such as severe weather.
