    Uckfield Bus Station Improvement Feedback

    Uckfield Bus Station is set to undergo a series of improvement works in 2024.

    East Sussex Highways are working in partnership with East Sussex County Council, Wealden District Council, and Uckfield Town Council to develop and implement improvements to the existing bus station to create a Mobility Hub. The proposed improvements will include:

    • Two new high-quality bus shelters, including upgraded seating provision with wireless charging, free Wi-Fi, real-time travel information screens and a ‘living roof’ with sedum planting.
    • New cycle shelter
    • New footway and carriageway treatment, with kerbing and paving to match the High Street
    • Construction of a new pedestrian footway along the south side of Bell Walk
    • Increased capacity to accommodate four buses
    • Enhanced pedestrian direction signage and street furniture, including a new bench, planters and bins
    • Street lighting upgrades

    A big focus of the plans is to advertise new Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) to better manage the parking and vehicle movements in and around the bus station. These include formalising the one-way system into the bus station, introducing a 20mph speed limit, and introducing new parking restrictions on Bell Walk.

    East Sussex Highways intends to commence construction in summer 2024.

    A public consultation is now open for you to have your say on whether the plans need further amendments, particularly in terms of TROs.

    You can offer feedback on the plans from East Sussex Highways and East Sussex County Council here: https://live.eastsussexhighways.com/highway-schemes/uckfield-bus-station?fbclid=IwAR3HXungQtpd66VV1O-RwGZAMBwJ6blYx5B64cs9Ua1Tr1oTVu9hj9VcODI

    The deadline for feedback is Sunday 10 March, 2024.
