Overnight road closures on the A259 between Peacehaven and Newhaven are set to continue for the rest of the week.

The works by East Sussex County Council are taking place for carriageway patching and to repair cracks in the road.

This is scheduled to take place from 8pm to 4.30am every night up until Saturday, April 20 between the junction of The Highway and the Links Avenue junction.
