Accessibility Statement

Using this website

This site is run by East Sussex Highways, a partnership between East Sussex County Council, Costain and Jacobs.

  • We aim to make it as easy to use as possible. You should be able to:
  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts.
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using only a keyboard
  • listen to our website using a screen reader.

Go to AbilityNet to find out how to make these changes.

All non-text content has a text alternative.


We use plain English to make the text easy to read.

If you would like to read the website in another language use Google Translate.

Non accessible content


Some images contain text, so people with dyslexia or using a screen reader will not be able to read the information.

We are working to remove all images that contain text. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.

PDFs and other documents

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services, but may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader.

We are working to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages. Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish should meet accessibility standards.

Third party elements

We use third party elements in our website and it is possible that some of the form and display elements may not be fully accessible. Unfortunately this is beyond our control. An example is the Google Maps implementation. However, we have tested these as a user from an accessibility perspective and believe that the non-accessible elements are not required as part of our implementation and are loaded by default.

Reporting accessibility problems with this website

We are always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you are having difficulty using any part of our website or think we are not meeting the requirements of the accessibility regulations please contact us.

Enforcement procedure

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the accessibility regulations. If you are not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).
