Why the constant road works?

Am I alone in believing that Snatts Road in particular and the Ringles Cross area in Uckfield generally must be the most dug up pieces of highway in East Sussex?

Yet again Snatts Road is closed to through traffic – this time for a month – causing traffic chaos throughout the town particularly at peak periods.

I accept that essential work needs to be done, but why always here. Can someone explain?
