There will be resurfacing roadworks on the A21

  • In both directions from Coopers Corner roundabout to the John's Cross roundabout on 10.08.20 from 20.00-06.00.
  • In both directions from Northbridge Street roundabout to John's Cross roundabout 11.08.20 and 12.08.20 from 20.00-06.00.

Emergency vehicles will always be provided with access through the works.  Local traffic can access the A21 up to the individual closure points and residents with access only off the A21 will be escorted through the works.

Diversions

  • Southbound - southbound traffic on the A21 will be diverted off the A21 at the Flimwell crossroads on the the eastbound A268, before joining the A28.  Traffic will then continue on the A28 to re-join the A21 at Baldslow.
  • Northbound - northbound traffic will leave the A21 at Baldslow and join the A28, before joining the westbound A268.  Traffic will then continue on the A268 to re-join the A21 at Flimwell.

We have been advised that Osbourne, on behalf of Highways England, will be carrying out resurfacing to address carriageway defects in the Robertsbridge area.  The works will include the resurfacing of defective areas, new road markings and stud replacement.
In order to carry out these works as efficiently and safely as possible, work will be carried out overnight between 8pm and 6am, utilising both full south and northbound carriageway closures on the A21.  The works will be carried out between Thursday 25.06.20 and Saturday 27.06.20, with Sunday 28.06.20 held as a contingency and are weather dependent.

Clearly signed and symbolised diversion routes will be in operation during this closure for through traffic and for local traffic.
Through traffic
Southbound - 
southbound traffic on the A21 will be diverted off the A21 at Flimwell Crossroads on the the eastbound A268, before joining the A28.  Traffic will then continue on the A28 to re-join the A21 at Baldslow.
Northbound - northbound traffic will leave the A21 at Baldslow and join the A28, before joining the west bound A268.  Traffic will then continue on the A268 to re-join the A21 at Flimwell.
Local traffic
Southbound
- local traffic heading southbound looking to get to the Vinehall and Whatlington areas, should use the diversion route as stated above and access to residents only will be provided at Baldslow.  Please note that this will only be available for residents with access only off the A21.
Northbound - local traffic heading northbound from Hastings can access the A21 up to the individual closure points and residents with access only off the A21 will be escorted through the works.

Traffic leaving their properties during working hours will be escorted either to the northern or southern end of the closure, depending on which is closest, and will use the main through traffic diversion routes listed above to continue their onward journeys.  Please note that any southbound traffic leaving Robertsbridge will be diverted off the A21 and onto the A2100 and The Ridge, due to other works being carried out on the A21 in the Whatlington area.  A hard closure will be in place on the A21 at the John's Cross roundabout, Vinehall Street and Marley Lane, with gated access for residents only, there will be no through traffic permitted here.

Residents in the John's Cross to Whatlington area, who previously received a letter about A21 John's Cross to Whatlington - please note the changes to access on 25/26/28.06.20.  This will not affect your access at any other point during our ongoing works between John's Cross and Whatlington.

At last, I have formal confirmation from ESCC Highways about the impending roadworks - A2100 London Road, Mountfield.
Section 1 - 29.06.20 for 4 weeks, from level crossing heading north to John's Cross roundabout.
Section 2 - 11.07.20 for one night, as shown on map in red (see link below), across junction with gypsum mine access road.
Due to the nature of the works, the road will be closed to through traffic 24 hours a day.  Access to residents and recycling site will be maintained, but you may have to take the diversion route which will be signed on site.

ESCC HIghways will be carrying out resurfacing works on London Road (A2100) from Solomon's Lane to the A21 John's Cross roundabout.  The works will start on 26.05.20 and continue until 08.06.20.
The road will be closed for 24 hours each day during this period.  A suitable diversion route will be signed on site.
Unfortunately I cannot give you a link with more information on the ESCC Highways website as they sent me the wrong link and you just get a 404 error.  I'll post again if I get any more information.

East Sussex Highways are starting their spray patching programme today (01.04.20).  Their wonder machine can fix permanently up to 200 potholes per day.
The link below will give you details about the roads they will be working on and how the patching machine works.

Solomon's Lane will be closed from its junction with the U6623 (Hoath Hill) to its junction with the A2100 from 31.03.20 to 02.04.20, for ESCC Highways to carry out patching and kerbing works.
The ESCC Transport Hub has arranged for the 384 school bus to drive through the works.  Battle Area Community Transport services that would normally run via Solomon's Lane will have to divert.

Just had email from Highways England, they will be carrying out survey works to ascertain the current ground condition of the highway.
In order to carry out these works as efficiently and safely as possible, work will be undertaken using temporary traffic signals for a single lane closure on both the north and southbound A21.  The dates are from 16.03.20 to 20.03.20 from 9.30am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday only.
In addition, there will be two nights of lane closures - A21 north and southbound from John's Cross to Stream Lane.  The dates are 06.04.20 and 07.04.20 from 8.00pm to 6.00am.

 

 

I have just heard that the repairs/resurfacing to the A2100 (John's Cross to level crossing) will now not take place until Summer 2020, due to road space issues.
Many thanks to all who emailed me with their comments, regarding storm water/heavy rain etc., and the actions that should take place to contain this.  I've passed your comments (with redacted personal details) to ESCC Highways.
