Motorists are set to be re-routed through Eastbourne town centre at night for the next ten days.

From today (Friday December 4) until Sunday (December 13) Grove Road and South Street will not be open to traffic between 4-7pm because of the Neon Noel light display on at Eastbourne Town Hall.

Traffic will be diverted via surrounding roads and there will be no access on to Grove Road and South Street from through roads.

Buses are also being re-routed.

The town bound Route 3A will operate down Meads Road, turn right into Grange Road, left into Furness Road then rejoin the normal line of route.

The Meads bound Route 3A will leave Terminus Road, turn back at the station roundabout continue along Terminus Road and when buses get to the Memorial Roundabout, they will operate via the A259 and stay in the left hand lane, turn left into Furness Road, right into Grange Road and left onto Meads Road and back to a normal line of route.

Route 3 will run a normal route but when leaving Terminus Road it will turn back onto Terminus Road at the Station roundabout, then continue onto the normal line of route.
