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. They will choose the option with the most votes by 9th September. 

London Road needs more bike parking, better east – west routes for cyclists, less traffic, wider pavements and better bus shelters, however funding is limited for this scheme. The budget has been drastically reduced because funds have been diverted for emergency repairs to the seafront arches. 

Not enough bike parking!
