I'm trying to find out if the road coming from Uckfield A26 towards Brighton is open on Sat pm/Sun am and not road blocked by The Police
I'm hoping to get a taxi to pick us up in the BP/M&S Garage just before the tunnel.
Any ideas ?
Many thanks,

A27 closed at Earwig Corner and NO access to the town allowed.

The various warnings posted by the council/police etc say that the roadblock will be in place from Earwig corner (which is the Ringmer turning) until 0100.
I think I'd phone the taxi company you intend to use and ask their advice: they may know if they're going to be able to cross before then. Also I'd want to be sure that I could book at taxi at all!

The road signs for the C7 say the road between town and the Kingston junction will be closed until 2 am. I wonder why that road is closed for an hour after the others are open?

is the tunnel closed as well ? thought the buses were going through that way ?

The tunnel's closed, according to LDC information, where they say the road's blocked at the Southerham roundabout all the way up to Earwig corner. That does not seem to be what Brighton and Hove buses think is happening, who are expecting to go through the tunnel and stop at the Spinneys on Malling St. Very confusing, frankly.

What time are the roads closed?

This is beginning to have the makings of a right royal cock-up.
Hopefully, an exception to the road closure for the A26 is being made for buses. If not, anyone who has no choice but to work on Saturday is going to have a long walk home from the A27 at the end of the day.

An exception to the toad closure is being made solely for buses. As brighton and hove buses info states there may be a delay waiting for buses to be allowed through the closure

I'm not sure I understand why people in town will be blocked in, as well as people out of town wanting to come in will be blocked out. Is there any sense behind that?

The situation for those bonfire enthusiasts from parts of Sussex outside Lewes is this:
Arrange for a friend to drive you as far as possible towards Lewes, to arrive perhaps no later than 4pm. And return about 1am.
Stock up on enough booze for seven hours (junk food is probably available from street vendors).
Enjoy the celebrations.
Walk back to your point of disembarkment, contact your chauffer by mobile and be prepared to walk further to where he may have to wait.
Take some waterproof clothing, as rain is forecast.

Living in Lewes and complaining about bonfire is about as stupid as moving to Hounslow and complaining about planes.

Nevill road has signs saying it is shut at 5pm and not open until 2am
However, LDC website states that Nevill Road will be open until 7pm.

ok stupid to complain? probably because nothing is going to stop bonfire night in Lewes, but not as stupid as dressing up looking like idiots , getting paralytic , taking drugs and behaving like idiots.

We are concerned about Nige's "Toad Closure" comment, although not quite sure what a toad closure, it sounds iffy, and some are protected. This comes on top of the loss of cats, hamsters and zebras in Lewes (as well as a barking dog, which can be heard in Glasgow) and are therefore planning an inspection visit on Nov 5
