Work is starting on the latest phase of an ambitious scheme to modernise and transform Eastbourne town centre.
The project, costing £6.2m, aims to reduce traffic and improve access for pedestrians and public transport.
The changes will work alongside the redevelopment of the Arndale shopping centre, as Malcolm Shaw now reports.

From the Magic Roundabout to Dangermouse and Thunderbirds - a unique collection of children's TV memorabilia has been brought together in Eastbourne - and its looking for a permanent home.
Andy Dickenson reports.
Andy spoke to Paul Young, the creator of Animazing.
Her first twelve months. Anniversaries are supposed to be happy events. But Theresa May admitted today that as she neared the end of her first year as PM, she shed a tear or two. It wasn't the election result she expected - and to be fair to the Maidenhead MP - it wasn't the election result the pollsters, or anyone else, predicted either.
So will there be another anniversary to celebrate ? Or, as we enter the dog days of high summer, will these next few weeks see the end of her premiership? To debate that, and the never-ending troubles on Southern Rail, three Sussex MPs :-
- Lloyd Russell-Moyle, the new Labour MP for Brighton Kemptown
- Gillian Keegan, the new Tory MP for Chichester, and
- Stephen Lloyd, the new (and old) MP for Eastbourne
We ask voters in central Brighton to score her out of ten. And one MP who lost her seat tells us where the "nightmare" of last month's election began.
And would this cause Mrs May to shed a few more tears? We look at the increasingly vicious way cartoonists are depicting the latest inhabitant of No 10. One expert who has surveyed the satirists for the last fifty years and more, tells us why the Prime Minister is drawn the way she is.
The LibDems pulled off a big win in Sussex. Eastbourne has bounced to and fro between the Liberal Democrats and the Conservatives for more than 25 years.
Last night it was the turn of Stephen Lloyd. He lost the seat 2 years ago. Last night he turned the tables. Derek Johnson reports on a political comeback.
Eastbourne election: voter turnout 73.3%. 5% higher than the last election.
Ballot boxes from around the town are arriving at Eastbourne Town Hall.
The Conservative Party is defending a majority of just over 733, hoping to keep a hold of the seat over the Liberal Democrats, Labour and Green Party.
Eastbourne is historically a Tory stronghold.
