We will be undertaking tree works on the A23 Southbound Verge on the approach to Black Rabbit roundabout for 5 nights. Two mature elm trees and two elm tree groups are to be removed due to the onset of Dutch elm disease which makes them a potential risk to the carriageway.
The works will be taking place between the hours of 8pm to 11pm, to limit disruption to the high traffic volumes during the day. We are also mindful of the disturbance to local residents and will be finishing noisy works at the scheduled cut-off time each night – clear-up duties may continue after 11pm.
Kier Highways is a sustainable business and, in collaboration with Brighton & Hove City Council, two trees and two shrubs are being replanted to maintain the local ecosystem.
