Safety barriers have been put in place near the Stand Gate pending repairs to the roadside railings

Temporary barriers at the top of Strand Hill

Residents may have noticed the safety barriers erected by East Sussex Highways in place just below the Strand Gate. The existing metal railings and posts have become hazardous; a number of the posts are unstable and some of the rails have come out of their housings.

East Sussex Highways Authority, the responsible body, are aware of the situation and plans are in hand for the work to be carried out as soon as possible.

The Corporation are taking a keen interest in the situation as it is adjacent to the Strand Gate and concerned for the safety of town residents.

In the meantime please take extra care when passing the gate and the surrounding railings.
