Sussex tunnel's 2.5m overhaul completed

Work to refurbish a tunnel in East Sussex which cuts through a chalk hillside has been completed.

East Sussex County Council said £2.5m had been spent on improvements to prolong the life of the Cuilfail Tunnel on the A26 in Lewes.

The refurbishment, which started in January, saw the structure's lighting and interior cladding replaced.

The council said the improvements would increase visibility, improve safety and reduce maintenance costs.

It is the tunnel's first major overhaul since it opened in 1980.
