East Sussex Highways will start repairs between Western Road and Osborne Road on Monday 6th March with work continuing until Friday, 31st March.

During the roadworks this section of Crowborough Hill will be closed between 8pm and 5am each night. Temporary traffic lights will also in place between 5am and 8pm each day.

Signs and traffic cones will advise where parking is restricted.

Access for pedestrians and emergency vehicles will be maintained. Anyone needing vehicle access during the works should discuss this with the team on site who will be able to assist.

Karl Taylor, Head of Operations at East Sussex County Council, said:

We appreciate the night-time roadworks on this section of Crowborough Hill will cause some disruption to road users and residents.

This work will improve the road surface and address drainage issues along this well-used route. To ensure the work can be carried out safely we need to close the road, but by working overnight we hope to minimise disruption to residents and road users.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the roadworks and would urge people to plan ahead if they need to use this road during the four weeks when this essential work is taking place.

Head of Operations at East Sussex County Council

During the road closure, the official diversion route traffic will be via Western Road, Walshes Road, Fermor Road, Hurtis Hill, Sheep Plain, A26, B2100 and vice versa.
