Early start for Link Road work

WORK on the £100million Hastings to Bexhill Link Road is set to get under way this summer after the county council gave the go ahead for an early start.

Members of the Cabinet committee gave the go ahead for the first stages, which will include archaeological surveys and creating new habitats for wildlife.

County council spokeswoman Kathryn Langley, said: “This is a risk but one we feel we need to take as it will enable us to take advantage of the best weather and environmental conditions.

“It will also help us avoid long delays and increased costs in future.”
