I am emailing to notify you about an emergency road closure on Pett Level Road.
Southern Gas Networks have had to put a closure in place on Pett Level Road, near Cliff End Lane due to a gas escape.
The official diversion route will be extensive, via the A259 through Winchelsea, as Pett Road, which would be a shorter route, is not suitable for HGV’s or the steady volume of traffic regularly experienced on Pett Level Road. SGN will be posting signage at the junction with Pett Road advising as such.
SGN have assured our Network Team that they will do everything they can to mitigate the disruption, and that the road closure will only remain in place for as long as it is absolutely necessary. Please be aware however, that as this is a gas leak and certain monitoring has to be undertaken once a repair has been carried out, there will be occasions when no one is on site.
SGN can be contacted via the below details:
