Drivers in and around Wealden will have five National Highways road closures to watch out for this week.

But motorists will be able to take some solace in the fact that all of them are only expected to cause slight delays, of under 10 minutes.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that two closures already in place are expected to carry on this week:

Most Popular

    A26, from 7pm July 18 to 6am July 29, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A26 southbound and northbound and A27 eastbound and westbound, Newhaven to Polegate, diversion route for off network closure of A259 East Dean Road for resurfacing works for East Sussex Highways.

    A27, from 7am February 21 to 5pm October 4, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A27 westbound, Polegate to Berwick, layby closure for major highway improvement works.

    And a further three closures will begin over the next seven days:

    A27, from 8pm July 28 to 6am July 30, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A27 eastbound and westbound, Polegate bypass, Lane closure for maintenance works.

    A27, from 8pm August 1 to 6am August 5, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A27 eastbound and westbound, Wilmington Green junction, temporary traffic signals for major highway improvement works.

    A27, from 6am August 4 to 6am August 28, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A27 eastbound and westbound, Berwick to Milton Street, carriageway closure for major highway improvement works, diversion via local authority and National Highways network.

    National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
