Road closures are in place on Shrub Lane until Monday 3 April, including weekends.
Work is being carried out in phases, starting on Monday 6 March from the A265 working towards the junction with Cottenden Road, road closures are in place from 7am to 7pm.
During the closures, traffic will be diverted via the A265, Peartree Hill and Station Road. Residential and pedestrian access will be maintained but there may be delays.
Towards the end of phase 3, expected from Thursday 24 March, closures will remain in place but with traffic lights at the Cottenden Road junction.
An East Sussex Highways spokesperson said: “The recycling of the surface not only improves the strength and durability of the road and is quicker than traditional resurfacing, but it is much more environmentally friendly and contributes to efforts to reduce our carbon footprint.
“We apologise for the inconvenience this work will cause, but we would ask motorists to bear with us as the end product will be a smoother drive.”
