NORMAN WELCOMES NEWHAVEN TO PEACEHAVEN CYCLEWAY PLAN
April 24 2014.
Newhaven’s Lib Dem MP Norman Baker has welcomed East Sussex County Council plans to develop and improve cycle and pedestrian access between Newhaven and Peacehaven and is calling for swift action for works to start.
East Sussex County Council has included the shared cycle and pedestrian way along the A259, as part of its Capital Programme for Local Transport improvements 2014/15, following public consultations.
Norman says: “Improvements to safety and access for cyclists and pedestrian travelling between Peacehaven and Newhaven are long overdue. A long section of the A259 between the two towns has for years been separated off due to road
subsidence and I have continually called upon the county council to do some basic work to make this readymade channel into a cycle path.
“To have these works included in the capital programme plans is a small victory for those of us that have been fighting for this over the years. The council now needs to make sure we use no more time.”
