Road closure to be lifted to help visitors to South of England Show

South East Water have announced they’ll temporarily lift the road closure on the B2112 at Fox Hill

The road closure will be lifted by 5pm on Thursday 10 June to assist visitors to the South of England Show this weekend.

Restrictions will be re-instated by 7am on Monday 14 June to enable pipeline work to continue.

The work started in April and is expected to finish in mid-July.

Matthew Cooper, Project Manager for South East Water said, “We appreciate the patience of residents and road users while we carry out this essential work under a road closure.

We will always look to work around the needs of the community when carrying out a scheme and are happy to lift our road closure for the weekend of the South of England Show as we know how important and popular it is attracting people from across the region.

Once installed, the new main will secure the top quality drinking water supplies to the area as the local population grows.

We are now in the final phase of work with approximately 65 metres left to install.”
