Cheals Roundabout full opening delayed till August ’19



The Cheals Roundabout was scheduled to be fully reopened at the start of this month (June) but commuters and residents will have notice that there is still quite a bit of activity going on around it.

Investigative work being carried out by Southern Water has mean that the new left turn filter lane is to remain closed and this is resulting in the delay.

Crest Nicholson who are funding these works in association with Kilnwood Vale development in Faygate are trying to deliver a new segregated left turn filter lane leading from Horsham Road to Crawley Avenue, as well as constructing a separator island and landscaped footpaths and pedestrian crossings.

But now the works are expected to be completed by August 2019 although no exact date could be provided by Crest Nicholson.

Progress made in the area so far includes new drainage to improve overall road conditions, a new footpath on Horsham Road to ease pedestrian access and bases for the new road lanes added to the approach and exit points via Horsham.

Crest Nicholson say they have put measures in place to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum and access to surrounding properties and businesses and areas will be maintained at all times.
