The A22 Golden Jubilee Way has been closed after a collision on the southbound carriageway this morning (January 23).
Emergency services are on scene and there is said to be diesel on the road after the incident at about 9.30am.
East Sussex Highways said on Twitter, “The Police and East Sussex Highways are in attendance. The road will be closed at this time whilst they clear the carriageway. Thanks.”
Then at 11.45am, Highways said, “Eastbourne southbound is still closed and will be for the next few hours at least. Specialist Cleaning Equipment is on its way and the road will be reopened once this has been completed.
“Please avoid the area if you can. Diversions being put in place.”
Special Constable Luke Williams said the wait is due to a long ETA of the cleaning vehicle.
No injuries have been reported.
There was said to be queueing traffic on the A27.
