Three weeks of roadworks to repair Seven Dials roundabout

An award-winning new Brighton roundabout which was only installed three years ago is to get three weeks of roadworks to correct defects which have seen its kerbstones crumbling.

The changes to the Seven Dials roundabout courted controversy from the start, with Green activist Tom Druitt, now a councillor, climbing an elm tree for several days to successfully stop it being chopped down as part of the new layout.

Once installed, the roundabout itself won awards – but eagle-eyed residents soon spotted the kerbstones were crumbling after a few months.

Bell shaped bollards were installed to stop lorries and other heavy goods vehicles crossing the central island – and now, the kerbstones will be relaid flush with the tarmac to avoid impact.

Delays should be expected during the works which are scheduled to take place between Thursday, September 15, and Friday October 7. Lane closures, temporary traffic lights and diversions will be in place.
