Important update on the Port Access Road Construction Scheme

Dear Local Resident,

As you may be aware the construction of the new port access road is progressing well. We are soon to achieve a large project mile stone with the first deliveries of the steel beams for the bridge. These are being fabricated in Darlington and will soon start setting off on their 3 day journey to us here in Newhaven.

The largest of the beams is just short of 50m long and with the transport vehicle will be approximately 60m in length. This is equivalent to 6 London double decker busses.

There are 9 beams and these are being delivered in groups of 3. Due to their size they are being transported under an Abnormal Load Movement Order and will have a police escort. The time of the movement is dictated to us by the local authorities and written into the Order.

The first beams are due to transit through East Sussex on Wednesday 13th November arriving in Newhaven between 12:00hrs and 14:00hrs. During this time delays are to be expected as the beams manoeuvre through the local road systems.

Residents of Beach Road are especially requested not to park on the road between these hours on the dates below, where the destination is East Quay, to avoid issues with the beams transiting to the port.
