Bexhill Hastings Link Road opens

After decades of debate and dispute at local and national level – and between our government’s departments – the Bexhill Hastings Link Road has now, for better or for worse, finally opened. Claims of new jobs, ease of traffic flow, development plans and a better economy for everyone, all of which have been vociferously debated at every stage, will now have the chance to be proven.

Bexhill’s road to prosperity

While the work on the Bexhill to Hastings Link Road remains on track for scheduled completion by spring next year, public transport improvements made possible by the link road are also expected to contribute to vastly improved transport communications between Hastings and Bexhill.
