Maria Caulfield MP and Conservatives success as traffic lights to go up as Exceat Bridge

Here is some good news for regular users of the Exceat Bridge.

Following calls from Maria Caulfield MP and Seaford Conservatives, the Conservative County Council are set to put temporary traffic lights at Exceat Bridge until the new bridge is built.

Maria Caulfield MP and Seaford Conservatives have been called for traffic lights to be kept at Exceat Bridge after previous lights had been in place for Eastbourne air shows and during road works in Alfriston, and been a success. Now the Conservative Leader of the County Council, Cllr Keith Glazier, has confirmed to Maria Caulfield MP that a decision will be made to install lights at Exceat Bridge at a Cabinet meeting in a couple of weeks.

Maria Caulfield MP said “Local residents know how much the traffic lights really make a difference when they are in place. This is why local Conservatives and I have been calling for this to be done. With the plans for a new Exceat Bridge with the South Downs National Park we are close to getting a new bridge, but until this can be built traffic lights will be a big help for residents.”

Luke Proudfoot, pictured above at the bridge, Conservative Campaigner in Seaford South said “I have had many conversations with residents who are disappointed that this hasn’t been done previously. Maria Caulfield MP and Seaford Conservatives have been in calling on our colleagues running the County Council to put traffic lights in place until the new bridge is built. I am grateful to the Conservative County Council for this, and I know the residents will be too.”

This sounds most welcome and so sensible.
