Early last Saturday morning (September 26), a small army of workmen clad in fluorescent green and orange safety gear descended on Rye, their mission, to replace a gas main on the Winchelsea Road from the Harbour Road turn off to the Kettle o’ Fish roundabout.
The works are scheduled to last three weeks from 26 September and the signs warn of major disruption but four way traffic lights are in operation and the works are well signposted. There’s never a good time to disrupt the flow of traffic into Rye but now seems as good a time as any, given the current circumstances.
On the negative side we all face three weeks of inconvenience but on the positive side, at least temporarily, it will slow vehicles and motorbikes as they approach Strand Quay.
