Pedestrian Crossing Refurbishment on Keymer Road Hassocks

As part of West Sussex County Council’s continuing efforts to improve the highways, work is due to commence soon at Keymer Road, Hassocks.

This project will include;

  • Upgrading obsolete traffic signals equipment with new poles, traffic signals controller and more energy efficient LED traffic signal heads.
  • New additional pole on the northside of the crossing to improve both pedestrian safety and traffic signal head visibility for road users.
  • Inclusion of pedestrian beepers and rotating tactile devices to aid those with visual impairments to cross safely.
  • Pedestrian tactile paving is to be replaced.

When this will take place
The work will start on week commencing 19th February 2018 and is expected to take approximately two and a half weeks to complete. Hours of work will generally be between 8:30am and 6:00pm.
