This morning I drove into Lewes on the Uckfield road. It took me 25 minutes to drive the half mile from Paygate cottages to the road works at the junction of Church lane/ Mill road.
I did not turn round-as many did- and go via Barcombe, as I wanted to go to the Tesco area; and assumed there would be an equally horrendous queue across Phoenix Causeway and into the town. Wrong!
As I eventually passed through the temporary lights at the scene of the works, there were only about five vehicles queueing up Malling Hill.
It seems that the person who set up the phasing of the lights would be equally incapable of organising an alcoholic party inside a brewing establishment.

Did you see any signs to see how long the works would be going on for? Works for a new crossing near Pets Corner is due to start on 4th Jan which will cause even more chaos if these works are not finished by then.

Due to be completed 6 January as long as no problems. Have to say they have worked continually from Christmas Eve dawn till dusk. I wonder if the police could have got onto the contractors or council to sort light phasing.

I have to say, that on Christmas Day morning, all the cars were queuing up Malling Hill.

A lot of temporary lights are as bad. I passed through a set this morning near Rye. I stopped at a red and after green I went along to be met by cars facing a green their end !!! The Malling congestion was reported on the radio all morning.
