Road closure and local access

MemoryLossMemoryLoss Posts: 1 [New Seeker]
The A21 was closed overnight between Johns Cross/A2100 and the A28 at Hastings on March 4th. However, I understand the work only affected a few hundred metres immediately north of the A28 and that Highways England will have told you of this

I live in Sedlescombe, east of the A21, but that evening was in Battle, west of the A21. Had I followed the closure indicated online (ie TomTom and Waze) I would have had a very long journey home. Thanks to a tip-off, I used minor lanes which crossed a deserted A21, although I now think my normal shorter route of Marley Lane/B2244 was still available.

I have encountered these situations before, where the diversion affects long distance traffic but local traffic is unaffected. Could closures be colour coded on the maps, so the section actually closed is one colour, but sections still open to local traffic are a different colour?
