DRIVERS are being warned that road improvements in Crawley have started

Work to revamp pavements and junction refurbishment in two roads in Crawley has started (Tuesday May 3).

Traffic signals under the railway bridge in St Mary’s Drive are being refurbished to repair wiring and detection faults.

Part of Queensway will also have its paving slabs removed and replaced with new ones.

The West Sussex County Council schemes, totalling £31,000, is being carried out Monday to Friday from 7am to 5.30pm, and occasionally on Saturdays from 7am to 1pm.

The St Mary’s Drive scheme is scheduled to take up to two weeks to complete, weather permitting.

Temporary lane closures are in operation and the pavement will be closed in sections during the work. The road is also expected to be closed for one day next Monday (May 9), dependent on weather.

The Queensway scheme is scheduled to take up to five weeks to complete, weather permitting.

Disabled parking bays will be suspended where necessary during the work, but every effort will be made to keep them open as much as possible. Pedestrian access will be maintained.
