East Sussex Rail Development Strategy
The East Sussex Rail Strategy and Action Plan [755.2 KB] [pdf] was approved by the Lead Member for Economy in November 2013. We will use this to influence future rail investment decisions in East Sussex.
The priorities which were identified from consultation and assessment of the schemes are:
- Priority 1: Hastings to Ashford line
Electrification and dual tracking of the Hastings to Ashford line, which is critical to economic growth in the county.
- Priority 2: Uckfield line
Electrification and dual tracking of the line between Uckfield and Hurst Green. This will improve links from the centre of the county into London.
