WSCC Highways have advised that the B2139 will be closed for the weekends of 24/25th November and 1st/2nd December. We understand that closures will apply from early Saturday am, through to Sunday pm., and that the location of the closures will be as per the map below (except for essential access). These closures are to enable required connection works by Southern Water which will necessitate blocking the full carriageway. Unfortunately, despite efforts by all involved, it has not proven possible to find a way to avoid road closures for this work – and this approach at least has the merit of not disrupting weekday school buses and the high volume of commuter traffic. Diversion routes/signage will be in place.
