NEWHAVEN PORT ACCESS ROAD - FINAL BRIDGE BEAM DELIVERIES

February 3rd, 2020.


Haven residents will be aware that the construction of the new port access road is progressing and that the final three steel beams for the bridge were due for delivery later this week on the original schedule. 


The schedule is delayed by one week, and they will now be delivered between 12.00 and 14.00 hours, next Thursday, the 13th, and Friday the 14th of February.


The local route of the beams is as follows:
Departs the layby on the A23 at Warninglid, where it will have been parked overnight, with police escort. It will then travel south on the A23 to the A23/A27 interchange where it will negotiate the interchange and head west on the A27. The beam will then leave the A27 at the Shoreham junction where it will then join the A27 again this time heading east. The beam will leave the A27 at the Beddingham roundabout where it will head south on the A26 towards Newhaven. On entering Newhaven the beam will continue to the roundabout with the A259 by the level crossing. It will then turn right and then left into Railway Road. It will then continue down Railway Road to the East Quay port entrance.

Residents are requested not to park on McKinley Way to avoid issues with the beams transiting to their destinations.
