A22 Uckfield By Pass re-opened

The Uckfield By Pass has re-opened following the gas leak.

A22 Uckfield Bypass in both directions closed, very slow traffic due to gas leak from B2102 (Copwood roundabout) to A26 Lewes Road (Little Horsted Roundabout).

The roads are very slow through Uckfield town centre due to traffic avoiding the closure.

The road has been closed since around 04:45 this morning.

0800hrs – the latest from SGN ‘ We are pleased to say that the repairs are nearing completion, it was due to third party damage yesterday, however, we will be having two way lights while the road is resurfaced’
