Road closures as works are on the way

A MAJOR road resurfacing programme is about to get under way across West Sussex which will also affect the Midhurst and Petworth area.

And West Sussex County Council will shortly make a temporary traffic regulation order covering all the areas where the work will be carried out.

Members of Midhurst Town Council heard this week that around 250 roads were affected by the order and these would be closed for anything between one and seven days at some point during this year to enable the resurfacing work to be carried out.

Signs giving advance warning of the works will be put up at each location before every road closure comes into effect.
