An East Sussex Highway spokesperson said: “Having carried out interim pothole repairs last year to address immediate safety issues, we are now carrying out more extensive repairs which will help prevent potholes from appearing in the future.”

The council said repairs would also be made to kerbs, drainage equipment and inspection chamber covers. Road markings will be repainted, including school markings, high friction surfacing on pedestrian crossings and approaches to junctions and roundabouts. Repairs will also be carried out on the westbound carriageway on the Church Road junction.

The Highway spokesperson continued: “This work has taken longer to arrange than we would have liked, but it was important that it be carefully planned and coordinated with utility company roadworks elsewhere in the town that could have had an impact on this busy road. As well as carrying out the work overnight, we will also be working in phases to further minimise disruption to residents. We apologise for the inconvenience these roadworks may cause, but the result will be a smoother, safer ride for motorists.”

Closures will take place from 7pm to 6am every evening with access for residents and businesses.
