“We appreciate that these improvements will cause some disruption, but we hope to keep this to a minimum by carrying out the work in the evenings and overnight and would ask residents to bear with us.” The road will remain open during the first night (May 9) with temporary traffic lights in operation, but will then be closed the following four nights.

Junction Road will be closed when the temporary lights are in operation. A suitable diversion will be signed on site.

The road will be closed for the remaining four nights (10-13 May) between 8pm and 5am each night from Harrow Lane to Queensway.

Traffic will be diverted via Harrow Lane, A21 Sedlescombe Road North, Old Harrow Road, Ashbrook Road, Battle Road, The Ridge West and vice versa.
