The A22 Uckfield by-pass has re-opened after being closed for gas main repairs.
However, temporary two-way traffic lights are in place.
Our earlier story
The A22 Uckfield by-pass remains closed in both directions this morning so the gas company SGN can repair third-party damage to its network.
The closure was put in place yesterday between the Lewes Road roundabout and Bell Lane due to emergency SGN works.
The repair is expected to take at least 24 hours to complete and motorists were asked to allow extra time for journeys this morning (Thursday).
The road was closed after residents across Uckfield reported a strong smell of gas.
Signed diversions were in place to guide affected drivers.
Routes through Uckfield town centre are heavily congested.
