Press release: Public exhibitions for A21 safety improvements in East Sussex

The improvements will be made over an 8.5 mile section of the A21 between Hurst Green and Sedlescombe. A new 40mph speed limit will be introduced on approach to the existing 30mph speed limit at Swiftsden, extending the existing 40mph speed limit further south at Whatlington and on approach to the existing 50mph speed limit at Sedlescombe. Around 3 miles of the A21 will be resurfaced during the same period using overnight carriageway closures.

Ahead of work starting, a public exhibition will be held at Whatlington Village Hall between 3pm and 7pm on Wednesday 29 July, where members of the Highways England project team in charge of the work will be on hand to answer any questions that drivers and residents may have.

Highways England Asset Manager Martin Wright said:


The A21 is a vital route for the tens of thousands of people that use it each day. We will improve journeys by resurfacing sections of the carriageway that have reached the end of its life. We are also reducing the speed limit along sections of the A21 to improve safety. I advise anyone who would like to know more about the speed limit reduction or roadworks to come and speak to us at the exhibition.

The resurfacing will be carried out using ten overnight carriageway closures in August.

The speed limit will be reduced to 40mph at three locations, covering a total distance of just over 2 miles:

  • at Swiftsden, creating a new 40mph speed limit north of the existing 30mph speed limit, covering around 1 mile
  • at Whatlington, extending the existing 40mph further south by around a ¼ mile
  • at Sedlescombe, creating a new 40mph speed limit north of the existing 50mph speed limit, covering around 1 mile
