Gas network company SGN has announced that the roadworks in Military Road will be completed on Tuesday, March 31, after only a week – they were expected to take two weeks.
The roadworks will then move downhill and over the railway bridge to Bridge Place.
Rye Hill will then be closed to traffic going in to and out of Rye from Wednesday, April 1 for two weeks.
The email to Paul Osborne on Monday afternoon did not mention what effect this will have on bus services using Rye Hill.
However the roadworks will apparently still permit vehicles to turn right into Fishmarket Road from the Landgate.
A drawing showing the precise location of the roadworks can be seen on Rye Town Council’s website.
