The junction has long been the subject of concern for residents and local Lib Dem councillors James MacCleary and Carolyn Lambert have been pressing for improvements to be included in the ongoing Major Road Networks (MRN) study. They also took a motion to the Cabinet Member for Transport at the County Council calling for action a few months ago. The business plan that may include consideration of this will not even be submitted to government until 2025 with no clarity as to whether or not a safe crossing will be included or what the timetable might be for its construction. Meanwhile, accidents in this area continue to cause injuries and gridlock on the A259 and to block access into and out of Seaford. East Sussex County Council needs to take action now on this issue. We the undersigned call on East Sussex County Council to provide a safe pedestrian crossing and improve overall safety at the junction of Bishopstone Road and the A259 as a matter of urgency.
