Following concerns raised by County Councillor Carolyn Lambert, East Sussex County Council has looked again at her request for a pedestrian crossing near Bishopstone.

Councillor Lambert explains:

“The County Council tell me that the scheme scored favourably against the benchmark score and will be put forward for a more detailed assessment and inclusion in budget plans.  I understand that the crossing proposal will also be included in the County Council’s study for this part of the A259.

I am very pleased that the County Council has taken the concerns of residents seriously.  It is clear that no major road works such as traffic lights or roundabouts will be put in place in this area for a number of years so it is vital that residents have something in the meantime to help them cross this dangerous road”.
