Council aim to improve London Road but funds limited

Brighton and Hove City Council is asking people to choose one of three options for short term improvements on London Road. These are 1) A General Clean / Smarten Up / Tidy  2) Minor Improvements to Preston Circus and 3) Improvements to the Oxford Street / Ann St Crossing.

Not enough bike parking!
