Delays possible as road works to last till June at Calvert Link, off the Kilnwood Vale Roundabout



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
