Brighton & Hove City Council partnered with neighbouring authorities and the South Downs National Park (SDNP) want to enhance sustainable access to our beautiful National Park. Ditchling Road is an important gateway into the National Park and the partnership is keen to create a supportive, welcoming and safe route which positively encourages people to walk, cycle and use public transport to get there from Brighton & Hove.
From Woodbourne Avenue to Coldean Lane, Ditchling Road and the green spaces either side are fully within the South Downs National Park boundary. This part of Ditchling Road is now subject to improvements so people can access the national park sustainably. This section of road also has a poor casualty record with two fatalities recorded in the last three years.
The consultation period has been extended from 8th Sept until 15th September, the web portal will remain open until midnight on 15th September 2013. Bricycles welcomes the cycle/pedestrian path and speed reduction.
Labour councillors are calling for a ‘pause’ on cycle lanes, which dould result in us missing further funding. Write to them to tell them this is unacceptable, using our step-by-step guide and template.
