Roadworks on Hurtis Hill in Crowborough

Update: Road should re-open on Friday 16th March.

At 7am on Monday (26th February), drainage repairs are due to start on Hurtis Hill in Crowborough at the junction with Harlequin Lane.

Hurtis Hill closed for 3 weeks from Monday 26th February 2018 for drainage investigation work at the bottom of Harlequin Lane in Crowborough

Due to the nature of the works, the junction will be closed to traffic 24 hours a day.   There will be no access to through traffic along Hurtis Hill / Sheep Plain from Crowborough to/from A26.  The works are weather dependent.

The 28/29 bus service between Tunbridge Wells and Brighton will be diverted along Church Road and down the A26 Beacon Road.  Bus stops on Croft Road (at the end of Southview Road/United Church), Whitehill Road (Bricklayers Arms, Rose Court) and Hurtis Hill will not be served during the work (more).

Access for residents will be maintained.  In case of any queries contact East Sussex Highways on 0345 6080193 or email

Best advice is to allow more time for your journeys.  CrowboroughLife will try our best to keep you updated regarding any rescheduling because of the unusually cold temperatures and snow forecast this week.
