Resurfacing is due to start today (Monday 10 March) to provide drivers with smoother, quieter and safer journeys on the A259 between Rye and Brenzett.

The work will involve overnight closures of the A259 and is due to be completed, weather permitting, on the morning of Saturday 22 March.

Anita Waterton, Highways Agency Project Sponsor said:

Sections of the carriageway will be resurfaced to provide drivers with smoother, quieter and safer journeys on this busy route. We have planned the work to take place overnight, when traffic flows are at their lowest, to minimise disruption. I would advise anyone wishing to use the A259 to plan their journeys and allow extra time.

The work will be carried out overnight, between 8pm and 6am, Monday to Friday.

The A259 will be closed in both directions between East Guldeford and Brenzett. A fully signed diversion will be in place via the B2075 and A259 through Camber and Lydd. Access for residents and local businesses will be maintained and managed locally on site.
