Eastbourne cyclists’ plea rejected

01 May 2020

East Sussex County Council has rejected calls for cycling to be permitted in a pedestrianised street in Eastbourne town centre. East Sussex and Eastbourne Borough Council consulted over the winter on the second phase of a movement and access programme for the town centre, including extending pedestrianisation of Terminus Road, the street connecting the railway station with the seafront. Cyclists criticised the proposals and said a ‘share with care’ policy should be implemented on the street. But East Sussex says allowing cyclists to use the pedestrianised section would be “inappropriate” because of the high footfall. “‘Share with care’ signs are non-prescribed advisory signs used for shared footway/cycleway routes,” it says. “They are not considered appropriate for town centre areas. We recognise the aspiration for cycling provision between the rail station and the seafront and as a consequence are developing options to achieve this.”
