Improvements at bus-stops

Real Time Information boards are to be installed at the following 18 bus-stops to supplement the 180 already existing in the city:-

Marine Drive - Marine Gate, westbound
Kingsway - Westbourne Villas, eastbound
The Drive - Upper Drive, southbound
Eastbourne Road
Ditchling Road - St Matthias Church, southbound
Dyke Road Avenue – Hillbrow, southbound
Western Road – Clarence Square, westbound
Portland Road – School Road, westbound
Mile Oak shops, southbound
Fleet Street
Manor Road – Bristol Gardens
Valley Drive – Whitehorn Drive, southbound
Old Shoreham Road – Hove Park Villas, westbound and eastbound
North Road – North Laine
Whitehawk Road – Findon Road, southbound
Davigdor Road – Lyon Close, westbound
Portland Road – Coleman Avenue

The cost of  over £200,000 has mainly come from property developers who negotiate contributions with the council planning department to pay for local improvements – called Section 106 agreements.

It is expected the new signs will be working by the end of August. They will complement 180 already operating citywide..

Bus-stop parking restrictions

Parking restrictions at 11 bus stops will be beefed up to stop selfish drivers blocking access to buses for people with mobility problems. These make any driver pulling up in a bus stop liable to a £70 fine. Consultation letters to locals are going out this week.

The proposed locations (street, bus stop, direction) are:-

Bexhill Road - Balsdean Road southbound and northbound
Bolney Road - already completed
Hangleton Way eastbound
Hodshrove Road
Poplar Avenue - Sherbourne Road
Carden Hill - Rotherfield Crescent southbound
Sherbourne Road - Sherbourne Close southbound
Hangleton Road - The Twitten northbound and southbound
West Way Twitten, westbound
