Worthing Crematorium Building Works
(added 16th April 2018)

Muntham Chapel interior

This is an important year for Worthing Crematorium. 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the Crematorium in our community. This important community asset needs to remain user-friendly and attractive for future generations.

The works start will start soon. This is our schedule for the next three months:

23rd April to 4th May 2018:

Temporary accommodation and the works compound will be installed. A restricted schedule of services will continue to take place at the Muntham Chapel. These will be located on the grassed area in front of the Muntham Chapel.

During the works Worthing Crematorium will carry out a trial of accepting direct cremations through the Kingswood Chapel after 4:30pm from Monday to Thursday.

8th May to 3rd August 2018:

The Muntham Chapel will be closed until the completion of the works. The works will be limited to quiet times and out of hours work to limit the impact on the services.

Please do excuse our appearance during the works. The team at Worthing Crematorium will do everything possible to make sure that everything runs as smoothly as possible.

If you do have any concerns, please contact:

Road Improvement Works on Long Furlong A280
(added 18th April 2018)

Safety improvement work starts soon on the A280 Long Furlong road, between Findon and Clapham.

The project will include altering the shape of two of the most severe bends (near the pumping station and near the cricket field), adding a higher-friction road surface and replacing cats eyes.

There will also be patching work to reduce the likelihood of future potholes and in preparation for more extensive resurfacing in 2019/20.

The work is scheduled to take place outside peak hours to try to reduce its impact on traffic, and the road will be closed 9:30am to 4pm, with a signed diversion route via the A27 to Worthing and the A24 to Findon.

During peak periods and evenings, two-way traffic lights will be in operation for the safety of road users and the workforce. We apologise in advance for the delays this will cause but the lights are needed to protect the working areas while materials set and cure and there may also be excavations.

Local access to homes and businesses will be maintained.

Work is due to start on 23rd April 2018 and is scheduled to take two weeks, subject to factors such as severe weather
