Crest Nicholson will begin road improvement works on Calvert Link, off the Kilnwood Vale Roundabout on Crawley Road, on the 11th of March 2021.

As part of these works, a new roundabout will be installed, and new road built to the west of the roundabout to cater for an anticipated increase in traffic flow due to the next phase of the residential development of Kilnwood Vale.

A change in traffic management is scheduled for the night of the 10th March 2021 and works are expected to be completed by 12th June 2021. During this time, Calvert Link will remain as a one lane access with use of vehicles via a traffic light system.

The improvements will continue to be fully funded by Crest Nicholson, in association with its nearby Kilnwood Vale development in Faygate.

Progress made in the area so far includes highway improvement works at the Cheals Roundabout, new draining 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 has put measures in place to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum and access to surrounding properties, businesses and areas will be maintained at all times.

Should there be a need to contact the team, the contact number for the contractor carrying out the works is 01202 653570

‘Please come forward with information no matter how small’ Police appeal as E-Fit of attempted rape suspect released

Police have released an E-fit image of a man sought in connection with the attempted rape of a 17-year-old girl in Crawley.

Between 7pm and 7.15pm on Tuesday (March 9), the teenager was walking her dog along the pathway from Overdene Drive towards the tunnel that runs underneath the A23 and follows on to Quantock Close.

She turned around before the end of the tunnel and walked back along the path to Overdene Drive. As she did so, she crossed paths with a man who grabbed her and attempted to rape her.

The victim was able to break free and shout for help, causing the man to flee the scene in the direction of the tunnel. The victim is being supported by specialist officers. 

The man was described as white, in his late teens to late 30s, 5’ 9” to 5’ 10”, with dark eyes, short dark coloured hair and short dark stubble. He spoke with an eastern European accent and was wearing dark clothing.

Investigating Officer Detective Inspector Allana Hughes said:

“We are appealing for anyone who recognises this man, or anyone who witnessed the sexual assault or any suspicious behaviour at this location around the time of the incident, to make contact with us.

“We would particularly like to hear from people who were in Quantock Close, The Dingle or surrounding roads around this time or anyone who may have dashcam, ring doorbell or CCTV footage which might have captured the suspect fleeing the scene.

“We have increased our patrols in the area and have been conducting house-to-house enquiries alongside investigating any potential lines of enquiry.

“Please come forward to us with any information which you think could help our investigation, no matter how small.”

Information can be passed to Sussex Police online or by calling 101 quoting Operation Stockbridge.

Alternatively, people can get in touch anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
