The Government has no current plans to reinstate the line between Lewes and Uckfield, but are committed to improving services on both the Uckfield line and the wider Brighton Main Line.

You may also be aware that £19.2m has been spent on the Uckfield line to enable longer ten car trains to operate, providing much needed extra seating and space for passengers.
