Brighton's A259 eastbound reopens

The A259 Eastbound has partially reopened following its closure due to the fire at the Royal Albion Hotel on 15 July.

Two lanes have been opened to traffic this morning (Saturday 26), which will help ease congestion in the city centre over the bank holiday weekend.

Repairs are still ongoing, and health and safety remains our priority. We would like to thank residents and businesses for their patience during this period.

The teams involved are working hard to complete this work quickly and help minimise disruption.

We will continue to update our websiteFacebook, and Twitter accounts with information and advice.
