Safety Improvement Work Starts Soon At Warnham Junction

Safety improvement works start soon in Bell Road, Warnham, at its junction with the A24 Dorking Road.

Safety concerns were raised and studies showed that visibility for road users accessing the A24 could be improved there. The junction, including kerbs and the traffic island, will be moved between four and five metres to the south.

The verge will be widened on the north side of Bell Road and the road widened on the south side. This will give improved visibility to the north for traffic turning south out of Bell Road.

Work is due to start on 8th October, subject to factors such as severe weather. The project will take about six weeks to complete, during which Bell Road will be closed to through traffic for most of the time, with a diversion via Knob Hill. Access for residents will be maintained.

A West Sussex Highways spokesperson said: “This project will provide a better access arrangement on to the busy A24. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during the works but please be assured we will do all we can to try to limit this as much as possible.”

The project will cost about £120,000.
