As part of a community led proposal to improve pedestrian safety and reduce traffic speeds in the local area, the community highlighted the requirement for a pedestrian crossing to improve pedestrian safety.
An initial design approximately 55m east of Hazelhurst Drive was put forward with a formal consultation held in September 2020.
Objections were received and this proposal was discussed at an informal meeting of the County Local Committee (CLC) in December 2020. CLC members did not support the proposal and an urgent decision was taken to investigate a crossing location further to the east of the initial proposal to help alleviate some of the concerns raised by residents.
Following technical investigations, a revised proposal was designed, and a second public consultation held. The proposal is supported by the local County Councillor Bob Lanzer and Sussex Police and therefore a signalised pedestrian crossing is proposed.
The Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport has approved the revised proposal for a signalised pedestrian crossing as advertised on 24 February 2021, under reference TRO/CRW8027/RC, as set out in section 2 of the report, with a view to completing construction before the end of the 2021/22 financial year.
