We are working to upgrade the gas supply network in Courtwick Road, Littlehampton.
We are investing £885,000 on this essential work which is part of an ongoing project in Littlehampton. The project involves the replacement of old, metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply to the local area.
In consultation with West Sussex County Council, we will start our project on Monday 14 August. We’ll be working in Courtwick Road in two phases over eight weeks.
We will begin work in Courtwick Road on Monday 14 August between its junctions with Wick Street and Selwyn Avenue. To ensure the safety of our engineers and motorists, the road will be closed between these junctions for approximately two weeks. Local access will be maintained via a signed diversion in place for motorists. During this phase, temporary two-way traffic lights will be in place on Wick Road at the junction with Courtwick Road. The lights will ensure traffic can flow past our work area safely and will be manually operated between 6am and 7pm from Monday to Friday to minimise disruption to motorists.
On Monday 25 September, we will return to Courtwick Road, moving along the road between its junctions with Selwyn Avenue and Clun Road. To ensure everyone’s safety, a full road closure will be in place in Courtwick Road between these junctions. Local access will be maintained via a signed diversion in place for motorists. Work is due to finish by Friday 27 October 2017.
Further details on this project, including diversion routes, can be found in our project leaflet.
We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means that when the work is complete, Littlehampton homes and businesses will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.
