A Winter Sprinter as Transport Company Delivers to Crawley

Sussex Transport make daily deliveries in and around Sussex,  Surrey and Hampshire, as well as further afield on a regular basis.  With a large, varied fleet of vehicles  to accommodate the smallest package, right up  to shipping containers, cabins and hot tubs on a HIAB truck with its onboard  crane for lifting and manoeuvring large, bulky items.

Last week we made a dedicated delivered to Crawley on one of  our Sprinter vans.

Drivers across Sussex were facing treacherous conditions this  week after a blanket of snow hit the county on Saturday evening.

Up to 10cm of snow fell in Sussex and Surrey overnight  with the worst hit areas covering east  Brighton, Hailsham, Uckfield, Eastbourne, Crowborough, Crawley, East Grinstead,  Copthorne and Horsham.

It took our friends  a  weary 2 -3 hours to travel the short distance from Gatwick airport back down to  the south coast on Saturday evening  following a week away in the sun – a sharp  shock after balmy temperatures in Egypt of 20 degrees and wall to wall sunshine!
A 50-year-old man was airlifted to Eastbourne District  General Hospital with a suspected back injury following a sledging accident at  Seaford Head Golf Club.

A couple had to be cut free from the car on the A29 at  Slinfold after their vehicle came off the road in heavy snow on Saturday night.

A lorry jack-knifed  on the A26 hill in Crowborough causing long tailbacks. There have been minor  shunts and cars travelling into ditches on the A23 in Handcross, Netherfield,  near Battle, Hartfield Road, Forest Row, the A27 at Hangleton in Hove and the  A264 in Copthorne, near Crawley.

Drivers were seen abandoning their cars in drifts of snow in  Downland Road, Woodingdean.

The wedding fayre due  to be held at the American Express Community Stadium at Falmer had to be  cancelled because of the treacherous conditions.  Cars were turned away because of the large  chunks of snow that were falling from the roof of the stadium.

Spare a thought for those living in Serbia … The Serbian government late on Sunday declared an emergency situation, saying the intense snowfall has jeopardized normal functioning. Emergency officials said that 70,000 people were cut off by the heavy snow!

Despite the travel disruption this week, Sussex Transport  have kept to their schedule and ensured all deliveries are made safely and in a  timely fashion.
