Last week Rye News ran an article which featured the former Skinners roundabout. It prompted some of our readers to consider renaming it, now the former car showroom has been demolished. This week the roundabout is in the news again but for a different reason.
According to Highways England, drainage repairs were needed on the section of the A259 between Skinners roundabout and its opposite number, the Kettle O’ Fish roundabout which meant the southbound and northbound carriageway had to be closed on Tuesday night from 8pm to 6am as shown in the photograph.
Any closure of the A259 in Rye is bound to cause disruption but at least the work was done overnight this time so the inconvenience was kept to a minimum and if the drains need fixing, they need fixing.
