Burgess Hill residents face nine months of traffic disruption due to a major project by South East Water to replace 2.6 kilometres of ageing water mains.
Work is due to start in Mill Road on September 16, with temporary traffic lights in place for 19 weeks.
Work will start on November 4 in Mill Wood and move on to Park Road, St John’s Road, Noel Rise, The Ridgeway, The Twitten, Noel Green, Crescent Road and Church Close.
The work is due to end on May 12, with either temporary traffic lights or priority boards in place while it lasts.
South East Water says residents will benefit from better water pressure and fewer leaks
The utility company is spending £670,000 installing the new pipeline as part of its upgrade programme, which is taking place across its supply area.
The company is holding a drop-in session on Wednesday, August 28 at the Sheldrake Suite, Martlets Hall, Civic Way between 4.30pm and 6.30pm. You can find out more about the project and view a timetable (pictured) of the works.
