Uckfield roads among 35-miles of re-surfaced highway

Uckfield area roads are among 35-miles of highway which have been given a new surface dressing by East Sussex County Council.

A six-week programme has seen roads coated with hot tar and chippings, a method which “improves safety by giving vehicles more grip and protects the surface from pothold-causing frost and water damage”.

The county council says the process, which is applied to roads showing signs of wear and tear, can extend the life of the carriageway by up to ten years, at a fraction of the cost of removing and replacing the road surface.

Uckfield area roads included in the programme are: Eastbourne Road, Halland; Uckfield Road, Halland; Uckfield Road, Herons Ghyll, Horsted Lane/Lewes Road, Isfield and Hempstead Lane, Uckfield.

Other roads dressed include some in Burwash, Heathfield, Horam, Mayfield, NOrthiam, South Chailey, Uckfield and Wadhurst.

Details of forthcoming roadworks in the county can be found at www.eastsussex.gov.uk/roads.
