Burgess Hill bridleway, path and cycleway upgrades

Place and Connectivity pathsWork continues to progress with our Place and Connectivity programme, improving sustainable transport links throughout Burgess Hill.

Path, cycle and bridleways are being widened to around 3 metres, so that people can share each route safely and travel throughout the town without being so reliant on the road network. Great care is being taken to ensure the surface is suitable for all users, including the horse riding community who rely on the bridleways.

The work is being carried out in sections and our team are working hard to upgrade and reopen routes as quickly as possible. The next sections to reopen are Green Link Route 5, which runs through Fairfield Recreation Ground and connects Royal George Road with Fairfield Road, and Green Link Route 7, which links Burgess Hill Railway Station with Oak Hall Park and the southern Green Circle.

By the end of 2021 it is anticipated that six miles of safe, direct and attractive walking and cycling routes will have been created or improved as part of the project.

When will I get my jab?

You will probably be very keen to get your COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible. 

The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus.

It’s being given to:

  • people aged 32 and over
  • people who are at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable)
  • people who are at moderate risk from coronavirus (clinically vulnerable)
  • people who live or work in care homes
  • eligible health and social care workers
  • unpaid carers

The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI)

Plans are already being put in place for rolling out the vaccine to the next priority groups. If you are not in the groups described above, you will be contacted at a later date once you become eligible.

Find out more about when you’re likely to be invited, how you will book your appointment and where you can get your jab at When will I get my jab? | Sussex Health & Care Partnership (sussexhealthandcare.uk)
