A road in Hastings town centre will be closed for three nights of carriageway repair works.

Harold Place/Havelock Road, Hastings, will close at 8pm on Tuesday (January 28).

The road will remain closed until 6am the following day. During that time, through traffic will be blocked off the A259 to Devonshire Road.

The work is expected to be completed on Thursday night.

East Sussex Highways said works were due to start on Monday but the expected heavy rain has created a delay.

A suitable diversion route will be signed on site.

East Sussex Highways said: “The road will be closed to through traffic. This is for your safety and the safety of our workers. If you do need vehicle access then please discuss this with the team on site. We will try to give access where we can but there may be long delays whilst we make the area safe. We will always allow access for emergency vehicles. Pedestrian access will be maintained.

“If it rains, we might be delayed in our works. We will keep you updated with any changes via advance warning signs.

“Please park your vehicle off road or in another location, otherwise your vehicle may be towed away. There will be ‘no parking’ signs and cones on site to advise where parking is restricted.

“We apologise if our works cause disruption to your bus service. Please check with the bus company for any alterations to the service during this time.”
