Sink Hole on the Recreation Ground

Published: 7 Jun 24

Latest Rec Ground Sinkhole update 6th June 2024 Works have begun by Southern Water to resolve the sinkhole issue on the Rec. The underlying issue has been identified as a broken sewage pipe running under the Rec that connects pipes on Lewes Road with the main sewer which runs under the public footpath to Streat. Excavation is currently underway to reach the pipe and replace it. Pumps will be running on an ongoing basis to keep the waste moving and avoid any further build-up. As part of the work, video cables will be used to review the existing pipe network under the Rec and identify any other issues or potential weaknesses. Repair works are expected to run through until the end of next week (14th June) - depending on the issues uncovered. Once the pipes are repaired, Southern Water will be carrying out reinstatement works to recover the ground to its original state. This is likely to take a longer period, and the area that is currently fenced off will need to be dug up and re-turfed, along with any vehicle damage marks. During this time, residents should not enter the fenced-off areas of the Rec Ground and its car park. We'll provide further updates as we get them from the team on the ground. Read More...
