New £120m Bexhill-Hastings road opens to boost East Sussex economy

A £120m new link road that will boost the East Sussex economy and improve journeys along the south coast was welcomed by the Transport Minister Andrew Jones on the eve of its opening. 

The long-awaited Bexhill to Hastings link road, which was delivered by East Sussex County Council, will significantly reduce congestion throughout the local area including the busy A259, Hastings seafront and surrounding rural roads. The road will also support economic regeneration, helping deliver up to 2,000 new homes and 3,000 new jobs.

The scheme is already boosting the local economy as companies move into a new business park next to the new route. Glovers House – a 25,000 square foot business centre – has already welcomed its first tenants to the site.

Transport Minister Andrew Jones said:

This new south coast link will end years of frustration for local people, providing far quicker journeys across the region and unlocking ambitious development plans. This road is further evidence of this government’s commitment to improving the UK’s transport infrastructure, creating opportunities for the development of new homes, business and jobs. The communities of Bexhill and Hastings have waited a long time for this day and now they have an improved road network to help them get around and get on.
