Marlborough Road Closure
As of Monday 14th March, the repair to the collapsed drain in Marlborough Road will commence and this means that this road will be CLOSED to through traffic for the duration of the repair that is estimated to be between 2 to 4 weeks. Road closure and diversion signs will be put in place by Highways. You can download a road diversion map here
To try and alleviate some of the anticipated problems this could cause, LBP have been working with WSCC Fire and Rescue Services to gain their support to enable the use of the exit into Elm Grove via Lancing Fire Station.
It has been agreed that this exit can be used between the hours of 16.30 and 18.30 but use is restricted to vehicles not exceeding 3.5 tonnes. It may not be used as an access point onto the business park.
In the event of a fire emergency necessitating the use of the fire appliance housed at this station, the barrier - that will be manned during this 2 hour period - will be closed until the fire appliance has left. Priority must be given to the fire service. Similarly the barrier will be closed for any period of time if there is congestion in Elm Grove and until traffic starts to move freely again.
This is an experiment but it is hoped that this arrangement will help to ease the probable congestion that will be caused by the road works but its continued use depends on satisfactory working arrangements and that rests on the users’ co-operation. It will be reviewed on a daily basis, but please explain to your staff that want to use this temporary facility that they can expect some delay during the time that Marlborough Road is closed.
