Cooden Sea Road, Bexhill - Carriageway Reconstruction

Monday 18th March 2019 for 4 weeks

What works are taking place?

We will be carrying out carriageway reconstruction works on Cooden Sea Road, Bexhill.

We will be using a repair method known as reconstruction. This is because as a busy road with high traffic volumes it needs a more extensive repair in order to keep it in a better condition for longer. This type of repair does take longer than standard resurfacing which is why the road will be closed for 4 weeks. 

When will these works start?

Work will start on Monday 18th March 2019 and continue for 4 weeks.

Road closure information

Cooden Sea Road will be closed to through traffic from north of Popps Lane to Withyham Road.

Due to the nature of the works, the road will be closed 24 hours a day. Access for residents in adjacent roads will be maintained.

Businesses will be open as usual. Access to Cooden Beach Hotel & Train Station will be maintained via Cooden Drive.


Traffic will be diverted via A259 Little Common Road, A269 London Road, Buckhurst Place, Sackvile Road, Wickham Avenue, Cooden Drive and vice versa.
