Local MP Norman Baker has been assured by East Sussex County Council that the worst roads in Seaford will be fixed in the near future.

After recently raising the issue on behalf of a constituent, surfacing works were undertaken on Sutton Road. Norman has previously pushed the council for comprehensive action to improve road conditions across Seaford. The council has now confirmed with Norman that work to resurface Blatchington Road will be undertaken later this month and work on the following roads will take place next year:

• Sutton Drove
• Beacon Road
• Claremont Road
• Marine Parade
• Stafford Drive

The proper resurfacing of these roads should help alleviate many of the problems associated with the upcoming winter. Having brand new surfacing will make new potholes less likely to form. Furthermore, this work ensures that new potholes that appear on these roads in the coming months will be properly repaired in the new year.

Norman says: "I am pleased to see the county council is taking serious steps to improve the quality of the roads in and around Seaford. Potholes are an issue that constituents regularly contact me about and often the council undertake temporary fixes that only guarantee the problem will return a few months later. Resurfacing projects, such as those promised, will provide longer term solutions that will benefit the residents of Seaford.

“East Sussex County Council often overlooks services in Seaford. It is all too common for the council to ignore the demands of the over 20,000 local residents, I am pleased to see that this is one issue that they are now addressing.”
