Roads and pavements: what we do

1. Which roads we look after

We repair and maintain most roads and pavements in East Sussex. We provide and maintain traffic lights, streetlights, road signs, bridges and other structures. We also maintain roadside verges, hedges and trees.

We do not look after Trunk Roads. These are maintained by Highways England. In East Sussex these include:

  • A21 outside of Hastings
  • A26 between the A27 and Newhaven
  • A27 and most of the A259, east of Pevensey (excluding Hastings).

We also do not look after private or unadopted roads. Find out more about Adopted roads.
