    Resurfacing to start in September 2022

    We’ll be carrying out resurfacing, repairs and refreshing road markings along the A259 between Sea Road, Winchelsea, and Kettle O' Fish Roundabout, Rye. This work will be completed weeknights between Monday 12 September and Friday 21 October 2022.

    We’ll make every effort to ensure the impact on the local community and travelling public is kept to a minimum, however we’ll need to close the A259 between the junction with the B2093 (Hastings) and the Kettle O’ Fish roundabout (Rye) between 8pm and 6am, Monday to Friday only, to allow us to complete the work.

    When the road is closed there will be a diversion in place going in both directions via the B2093, A28, A268, Rye Road to Skinners Roundabout.

    This work will cause noise through the night, please accept our apologies in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.  

    Accessing your property during our work

    For homes and businesses with direct access from the A259 between the B2093 and Sea Road (Winchelsea), you will be able to access your property from the Hastings direction. For Harbour Road, your access will change as our work progresses, but will be maintained. 

    If you live between Kettle O’ Fish roundabout and Sea Road

    We’ll complete the work in short stretches to help maintain access, but there may be times when access is restricted to individual properties between the Kettle O’ Fish roundabout and Sea Road overnight. This will be no more than a couple of nights.

    If you live on the A259 between the Kettle O’ Fish roundabout and Sea Road, and need access overnight, we’d like to know before we start so we can work with you to help.

    You can get this information to us via this form, by calling our contact centre on 0300 123 5000 (open 24/7), who will pass your details to the team, or by emailing: info@nationalhighways.co.uk quoting 603001 A259 Winchelsea to Rye.
