Work to demolish the Battle Road arches is now completed. The council is delighted that the work has been completed and wants to thank residents and businesses for their patience during these enforced but critical works.
Steel struts have been put in place to secure the structure left by the demolition of the arches. Over the coming weeks additional hoardings will be put in place, with the plan to work to have community artwork decorating the hoardings. Community artworks are a known deterrent to unwanted graffiti and we will try to involve residents in the design of these artworks.
East Sussex Highways have now removed most of the barriers that were in place while the demolition was being completed, and the road has been resurfaced and reopened.
