Major Road Network Funding – A22 Corridor Package

Wealden District Council have worked with East Sussex County Council and Transport for the South East to prepare and submit the A22 Corridor package of transport interventions as one of ten high-priority road improvement schemes to government for consideration as part of a £3.5bn, five-year investment programme in the Major Road Network.

The schemes seek to cut congestion, speed up journeys and support local and regional economic growth. They would each cost between £20m and £50m and would need to be delivered by 2025 if funded.

Shortlisted schemes were assessed against a range of national criteria as well as Transport for the South East’s strategic objectives for the region, which focus on sustainable economic growth, improved quality of life and the environment

The A22 Corridor Package scheme comprises of a package of improvements to a number of junctions on the A22 in the South Wealden and Eastbourne areas, as follows:

  • Boship roundabout – enlarge and signalise an existing roundabout at the confluence of the A22, A267 and A271;
  • Hempstead Lane – replace an existing left in left out junction with an all moves roundabout;
  • A295 (Eagles) South Road roundabout – increase capacity and introduce a jet lane from the A295 arm onto the A22 southbound
  • A27/A22 roundabout – increase capacity of existing roundabout on the SRN
  • A22 Golden Jubilee Way/Dittons Road roundabout – replacement of the existing roundabout with a traffic signal controlled junction including improvements for non-motorised users.
