Norman Baker launches A259 action plan


Norman, who has been MP for Lewes since 1997, is determined to improve safety, ease traffic flow and help the environment. His action plan includes proposals:

Make the traffic likes at Exceat Bridge 'smart' and traffic-activated

  • Create a new pedestrian crossing along the Eastbourne Road in Seaford
  • Reinstate the slip road at the turning to Bishopstone
  • Put traffic lights at the junction at Hill Rise and Marine Parade
  • Change the ring road in Newhaven, helping reconnect the town centre to the south and give relief to houses along the southern section
  • Create a proper cycle track west of Newhaven towards Peacehaven
  • Stop the Conservative-run county council from introducing cuts to local bus services

Commenting on these proposals, Norman has said:

"All these points along the road regularly generate emails and letters to me from constituents. What I am proposing is a package that will improve the road for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians. I am now asking for the county council, who are responsible for the road, to consult on these proposals with a view to taking action over the next 12 months."
