Lewes is the County Town of Sussex. Because of its location as a gap in the South Downs, it was once an important road junction, with several main roads meeting in the Town Centre, though bypasses and downgrading have reduced this somewhat in recent years.

The key transport developments in Lewes have been the Cuilfail Tunnel, which allows traffic on the A26 to avoid the town centre, and the replacement of the old level crossing at Beddingham, southeast of the town (carrying A27 and A26 traffic) with a bridge, though frustratingly it was not upgraded to dual carriageway as originally proposed.
