NORMAN WELCOMES NEWHAVEN - PEACEHAVEN CYCLEWAY PLAN
December 23 2014.
Norman Baker has welcomed East Sussex County Council plans to develop and improve cycle and pedestrian access between Newhaven and Peacehaven.
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 and work is set start in January 2015 with a planned completion for March 2015.
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 ready-made 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 lose no more time.”
