The prospect of two key roads in Uckfield being closed at the same time has been ruled out.
Fears have grown that the closure of Church Street would coincide with night-time works on London Road between Browns Lane and Ringles Cross.
UckfieldNews.com has been told by highways chiefs that there will be no double road closures.
Church Street was closed last week after a sink hole appeared. See our earlier story here.
London Road is due for night-time closures from Monday (June 4) for resurfacing – work that was postponed earlier in the year because of wintry weather. See our story here
The plan is to get Church Street re-opened in the next couple of days, which would allow the London Road works to go ahead as planned.
However, if the work in Church Street cannot be completed in time, the resurfacing will again be put off.
If both road closures had been in place at the same time, people wishing to access the Rocks Parks Estate, Hunters Way and Church Coombe areas faced long detours through villages, along country roads.
