|Route outline (key)|
The A2691 is a road in northern Bexhill, acting as a bypass for Sidley and offering development associated with Combe Valley Way (A2690).
The first section opened at the same time as the Bexhill to Hastings Link road, and at the time had no number. It was a link road from the A2690 to the A2036. It's intention was probably not a through route or bypass as there is a 30 mph speed limit and traffic islands unlike the rest of the road.
The second section opened in early 2019, and acted as access from the A269 to Watermill Lane until the full road opened. Watermill lane was cut in half as a result of the new road.
Finally, on Monday 11th March 2019, the whole road opened, fitted with roundabouts for future developments, and a combined footway and cycle path running along it's length. The road also features two traffic light controlled equestrian crossings.
