NEWHAVEN PORT ACCESS ROAD - FINAL BRIDGE BEAM DELIVERY

March 10th, 2020.




The contractors advise that the plan is now to lift the final three bridge sections into position directly from the transport vehicle. A new delivery date has now been set as Thursday the 19th of March 2020.


The plan is that all three sections will be delivered on the same day. There is a small possibility that one section may have to be delivered on Friday the 20th, but this will be dependent on the Police escort on the day.

It is unclear at this point as to the exact timings of the deliveries but it is likely the beams will arrive in Newhaven sometime late morning to early afternoon. T

The route of the beams is as follows:
Leaves the layby on the A23 at Warninglid, where it will have been parked overnight, with police escort. It will then travel south on the A23 to the A23/A27 interchange where it will negotiate the interchange and head west on the A27. The beam will then leave
the A27 at the Shoreham junction where it will then join the A27 again this time heading east. The beam will leave the A27 at the Beddingham roundabout where it will head south on the A26 towards Newhaven. On entering Newhaven the beam will continue
to the roundabout with the A259 by the level crossing. It will then turn right and then left into Railway Road. It will then continue down Railway Road to the East Quay port entrance.
