NO TRAINS will be calling at Lewes Station and numerous roads will be closed on the bonfire night.

Lewes bonfire night, an annual event held on November 5, is expected to cause major travel disruptions.

As with previous year's celebrations, a series of travel restrictions will be in place to reduce safety risks.

There will be no trains calling at Lewes, Glynde or Southease after 5pm on November 5 and no trains calling at Cooksbridge after the 4.24pm from Victoria to Eastbourne has stopped there at 5.23pm.

There will also be no trains calling at Falmer after the departure of the 6.31pm Brighton to Hastings service at 6.40.

No trains will call at the above stations until the first timetabled trains on the morning of November 6.

All road closures will be in place from 4.45pm, while Lewes residents are advised to get vehicles home before 4.30pm to avoid road closures.

The road closures include:

• A27 junction with A277 Brighton Road (Ashcombe Roundabout)

• A27 junction with A26 (Southerham Roundabout)

• A26 junction with B2192 Ringmer Road (Earwig Corner)

• C7 Kingston Road junction with C324 Wellgreen Lane

• A275 Offham Rd junction with B2116 Plumpton Road

• A27 junction with Southerham Lane (Cliffe Industrial Estate)

Visitors are also advised by organisers not to bring vehicles into the town, while parking restrictions will begin to be imposed from noon.

People are also encouraged to attend fireworks events closer to home.

Organisers said Lewes bonfire night presents a “unique challenge” as this year’s event falls on a Friday.

“This is likely to make it even more popular and tens of thousands of people are expected in the town, prompting concerns about over-crowding particularly in busy areas such as the War Memorial,” a spokeswoman said.

“Additionally, it is important to remember that the fireworks sites are strictly ticket-only.”
