A PROJECT to improve West Sussex roads is well underway.

West Sussex County Council said its £30m Better Roads Programme is already delivering results just weeks after starting.

The two-year programme, to repair rural and residential roads damaged by extreme weather over the past few years, has been up and running since mid-April.

So far 116,984 square metres of road surface has been repaired – almost the size of 14 Wembley Stadium football pitches, 13,001 tonnes of new road surface has been laid – equivalent to the weight of 5,020 Rolls Royce Phantoms, 99 sites around West Sussex have been resurfaced or repaired, with 11 of these treated with surface dressing and 22.22 miles of road length has been improved.

Residents will see more activities on their roads in the coming months because of the Better Roads Programme and there will be more road closures than normal.

To find out if your road is due to be repaired, visit www.westsussexhighways.org/betterroads and type the name of your road or town into the search bar.
