Preston Park


Requested Improvements

The Dyke Road Drive junction with Preston Road is dangerous and the site of many crashes.

Safer junction design is needed at Preston Drove junction with Fiveways and Preston Road. (i.e. at each end).

Preston Road – Stanford Avenue, improve junction

Improve Preston Circus for cyclists i.e. junction of Preston Road, Beaconsfield Road, London Road, New England Road (Preston Circus) (with StP&NL ward)

Better junction design at Old Shoreham Road / Dyke Road and Old Shoreham Road / Upper Drive (With Preston Park, Hove Park, Goldsmid ward)

A23 Preston Road northbound: Improved design north of Preston Circus: take a lane from the A23 and make a 2-way cycle route to Preston Park. Remove parking – or separate with a wide buffer to avoid risk of dooring.

Stanford Avenue – needs 2-way facility, traffic calming and gateway treatment to prevent southbound drivers from the A23 racing up the road. Remove one of the 3 traffic lanes to provide wide facility.

Contraflow at Springfield Road and more priority for people crossing the A23 at the Springfield Road junction.

2-way facility along Beaconsfield Road from Beaconsfield Villas/Stanford Avenue to Preston Circus. Would include along by Beaconsfield Parade (Sunny Foods, Arkwright’s etc.), parking control and management of deliveries/loading which are currently endangering people walking & cycling.

2-way cycle route for New England Road.  Extension east from Old Shoreham Road (with St Peter’s & North Laine).

Preston Drove – remove car parking and instate 2-way cycle lane.

Viaduct Road alternative from Beaconsfield Road to Ditchling Road via Stanley Road.

Viaduct Road alternative: Beaconsfield Road, London Road, Rosehill Terrace, Kingsbury Rd/St, Ditchling Road.

Preston Barracks to London Road station: A new route on the western side of Lewes Road starting from around the University of Brighton’s Cockroft Building, through retail car park, up Saunders Park View,, Freehold Terrace, Hollingdean Road, Hollingdean Lane, Ditchling Rise and London Road station. Then along Vere Road and Clyde Road to the A23 Beaconsfield Road.

Good route: Preston Circus to Trafalgar Street: Using NCN20, Elder Place, Providence Place, St. Peter’s Street, Pelham Street.

Creative suspended route: Extend the Greenway parallel to Dyke Road Drive to link up at the junction with Lovers Walk. (Would need to improve steep stair access.) Also to London Road station, parallel to Argyle Road and Ditchling Rise, above the A23, New York style!

Ultra Low Emission Zone from York Place to north of Preston Circus.

Improve York Hill contraflow cycle lane and make it wider. Clearer, better enforcement, preventing vehicles turning carelessly into the street.

Trafalgar Street to Jubilee Street: Via St. George’s Mews, Gloucester Street, Gloucester Road, Cheltenham Place, Barrack Yard to Church Street.

North Road – Contraflow westbound.
