Traffic delays at Marine Gate.

From 10 July, for about eight weeks, the council will be creating a dedicated bus layby at the west-bound Marine Gate bus stop. There will also be a new toucan crossing to help people leaving the bus to cross the road towards Kemp Town. These measures will make it easier for cars to pass stationary buses, as well as making things safer and easier for people using the bus, walking or cycling.

To enable this work lanes will be temporarily narrowed along the A259 from next week.

Since 2010 there have been eight casualties from accidents at the spot. A particular problem is stationary buses blocking pedestrians’ views of the road as they try to cross towards a central island.

This changes will also help guide cyclists from the cycle track on the southern side of the A259 towards other nearby cycle routes into east Brighton.
