ESCC HIghways will be carrying out resurfacing works on London Road (A2100) from Solomon's Lane to the A21 John's Cross roundabout.  The works will start on 26.05.20 and continue until 08.06.20.
The road will be closed for 24 hours each day during this period.  A suitable diversion route will be signed on site.
Unfortunately I cannot give you a link with more information on the ESCC Highways website as they sent me the wrong link and you just get a 404 error.  I'll post again if I get any more information.

PS - just got my broadband back after 10 days without it!

East Sussex Highways are starting their spray patching programme today (01.04.20).  Their wonder machine can fix permanently up to 200 potholes per day.
The link below will give you details about the roads they will be working on and how the patching machine works.

Solomon's Lane will be closed from its junction with the U6623 (Hoath Hill) to its junction with the A2100 from 31.03.20 to 02.04.20, for ESCC Highways to carry out patching and kerbing works.
The ESCC Transport Hub has arranged for the 384 school bus to drive through the works.  Battle Area Community Transport services that would normally run via Solomon's Lane will have to divert.

Just had email from Highways England, they will be carrying out survey works to ascertain the current ground condition of the highway.
In order to carry out these works as efficiently and safely as possible, work will be undertaken using temporary traffic signals for a single lane closure on both the north and southbound A21.  The dates are from 16.03.20 to 20.03.20 from 9.30am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday only.
In addition, there will be two nights of lane closures - A21 north and southbound from John's Cross to Stream Lane.  The dates are 06.04.20 and 07.04.20 from 8.00pm to 6.00am.



I have just heard that the repairs/resurfacing to the A2100 (John's Cross to level crossing) will now not take place until Summer 2020, due to road space issues.
Many thanks to all who emailed me with their comments, regarding storm water/heavy rain etc., and the actions that should take place to contain this.  I've passed your comments (with redacted personal details) to ESCC Highways.



There is light at the end of a very long tunnel - I have just received an email from ESCC Highways that says "I am pleased to inform you that plans have been put into place to refurbish this section of the carriageway.  Some parts are to be completely re-constructed, other parts resurfaced.  This work is planned for April, but not yet finalised as checks need to be made into road space, i.e. any other planned roadworks by utility companies etc."
I'll keep you all up-to-date as I get further information.
