• Littlehampton (BN17)
    Courtwick Road 

    Start date: 16 April 2018
    Approximate duration: 20 weeks

     

    We are working to upgrade the gas network in the Courtwick Road area of Littlehampton. 

    We are investing £886,000 to replace our old gas mains and services 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 work on Monday 16 April.

    Our engineers will be working in four phases in the Courtwick Road area, with the project expected to be completed by the end of October 2018.

    Phase 1 – approximately two weeks

    We will start our first phase on Greenfields on Monday 16 April. During this phase we will need to suspend some parking around our work area. We will attempt to keep disruption to a minimum.

    Phase 2 – approximately seven weeks

    Our engineers will move to Courtwick Road on Monday 30 April. To keep everyone safe around our work area, we will need to close Courtwick Road between The Crossways and Colebrook Road. Signed diversions will be in place for motorists and we will maintain access for residents where possible.

    Phase 3 – approximately seven weeks

    In mid-June, we will start our next phase in Clun Road. We will be working between Manning Road and the courtyard area of Kimberry, off Highfield. We will maintain traffic in both directions around our work area.

    Following the completion of phase three, we will suspend our work until October 2018.

    Phase 4 – approximately four weeks

    We will return to the area in October when we will be connecting our new gas main to properties in Kimberry, off Highfield. Parking may be restricted while we finish our project.

    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 residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.

    Update - 17 August 2018

    We've now finished our work in Clun Road and have suspended our work until October. We will return to Kimberry, off Highfield, to connect properties to our new gas main. We'll provide another update ahead of our project resuming.
