Newly seeded grass is doing well as work continues in Downsview Crescent, Uckfield, to reinforce verges with a plastic material.
The aim, according to East Sussex Highways, is to allow grass to regrow, while providing a more solid surface.
The verges have taken a battering for years because of vehicles parking on them while children are dropped off and picked up from nearby schools.
Newly seeded grass is coming through well on surfaces already treated – but already there are signs that people won’t be taking any more care with their parking once the work is completed.
Our pictures show where the work is taking place and the state of the verges at the moment.
