Highways will soon be carrying out essential maintenance work on the A259 near Winchelsea. This includes clearing and cutting back vegetation from the verges and cliff faces as you approach Winchelsea from the west (from Icklesham).

Closure information

There will be temporary traffic lights on the A259 Hastings Road / Rectory Lane between Winchelsea Lodge and the junction with Monks’ Walk, from 8pm to 6am the following morning, on Monday 15, Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 January. The road will be open as usual during the day.
