Felpham road is among those which has benefited from fund

A ROAD in Felpham was among more than 100 highways maintenance schemes which have been completed around West Sussex.


The location had its old surface removed and replaced.


The programme is being funded with a £6m injection of capital money from the government’s Department for Transport.


The extensive schedule of works includes road resurfacing and footway reconstruction, carriageway patching, tackling and preventing potholes, vehicle safety barrier upgrades and improvements to railway bridges


The work has been carried out by West Sussex Highways through its principal contractor, Balfour Beatty Living Places.


A county council spokesman said: “The extra funding from the DfT was announced in late 2018.


“To date, the programme has completed approximately 75,600sq m of road resurfacing, 40,900sq m of surface dressing remedial work and 7,500sq m of footway reconstruction.”


The DfT additional funding programme is separate from the pothole action fund and is being used for a range of local highway maintenance.
