Seven Dials Repairs

Seven Dials roundabout in Brighton will be subject to three weeks of road works to correct defects which led to parts of it crumbling.sevendials

Delays should be expected when work starts during the week of 11 September and continue until 8 October. Lane closures, temporary traffic lights and diversions will be in place.

Repairs are needed because some of the low kerbstones encircling the roundabout have broken or come adrift.  As a result, changes will be made ensuring kerbstones are flush with the tarmac to avoid any impact from vehicles. The roundabout will also be resurfaced.  Some of the work will happen at night to minimise disruption.

Suppliers are expected to foot the bill, totalling around £50,000.
