Mike Edwards – disruption will be a price worth paying

Battle Road will be closed to through traffic between 9am and 4pm each day from The Ridge West to Ashbrook Road. The road will be open outside of these hours. Access for residents and businesses will be maintained but they may need to take the diversion route.

Traffic will be diverted via The Ridge West, Junction Road, A21 Sedlescombe Road North, Old Harrow Road, Ashbrook Road & vice versa.

Councillor Mike Edwards who represents the Ashdown ward on Hastings Borough Council said this week: “I am very pleased to see that this section of Battle Road is about to be repaired and resurfaced, it has been in a desperate state for too long. We have been chasing the County Council to get it done and now it is getting fixed.

“I would like to thank all the local residents that have contacted me and other local councillors about the problem which we are now proud to say is being resolved. There will be several weeks of traffic disruption while the work is undertaken but I feel that’s a price worth paying. “

  2. Milward Road in Hastings is in a shocking condition and urgently needs to be resurfaced please!
