Over the last three months we have recorded several instances of motor vehicles crashing onto cycle tracks next to the A23 and A27 near Brighton. The risk to people walking or riding on these tracks is clear. As the vehicles clearly can’t be relied upon to stay on the road, crash barriers are needed. Among the incidents, two lamp posts on the A23 were flattened in separate crashes.
The results of Brighton & Hove’s 20 mph consultation (Phase 3 area) show that 55% of respondents support 20mph on their own street! The percentages in favour were:
Mile Oak 60%
Rottingdean & Ovingdean 69%
Proposals for new 20 mph limits have been developed in the light of local support/opposition. Full report here. It’s Agenda Item 61, pages 61-151. It will be discussed at the Council’s Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee meeting on 25 November. The Speed Limit Orders will be advertised in December.
Please sign the petition to Brighton & Hove Council for a Woodingdean-Falmer cycle path.
