A27 East of Lewes Consultation Closes Thursday

lewes-ha-con

Highways England is consulting on proposals for the A27 East of Lewes. The consultation closes on Thursday 8 December.

Proposals include a continuous route for cyclists from Lewes to Polegate, a route which includes Firle, Middle Farm, Charleston, Selmeston, Berwick, Drusillas and Wilmington. These are familiar names for anyone who cycles out of town into East Sussex. To view the consultation documents. look HERE and to complete an online consultation form look HERE.

We believe that the best option is for the  “walking and cycle path” as this benefits walking and cycling without supporting damaging proposals which will take more land for motor transport and encourage private car use. We also would like to insist on high quality infrastructure for walking and cycling and a proper transport strategy which encourages walking, cycling and public transport.

 If you would like to add your voice to support these improvements, please follow the links above to the consultation pages.
