Recent snow couldn’t stop progress on the largest resurfacing scheme carried out by the county council since 1994. The A22 Hailsham Bypass is free of cones, machinery and workmen in time for Easter. Since work began eight weeks ago, 67,640sqm of road – the equivalent of nine football pitches – was resurfaced. As well as the work involved in a resurfacing scheme of this magnitude, workers have also carried out hedge trimming, lining, drainage maintenance, barrier repair and kerb removal. Aqua seeding, a process where grass seed is sprayed using high pressured pumps, was also used to reinstate grass verges.
All the work has been completed on schedule and to budget despite delays caused by the wintry weather .
