They appear to be filling the hole back up so hopefully they will be gone sooner than anticipated!

Hopefully, however in 2016 there are plans to put a Pelican Crossing in, and Transco will at some point be back out to fix the Gas Pipe. Happy NYE

How many freakin' times do they have to dig up Malling Hil? It's getting beyond a joke now. God help Lewes on Monday morning, it's gonna be gridlock!

Having filled in the hole, they now seem to have dug it up again!

Disruption is a pain for drivers but the new crossing is great news for residents, and not before time. It would be good to have a crossing by the bus stop next to the pet shop too for those times when the bus doesn't turn up! Perhaps even a few bus shelters East Sussex Council?! More residential developments in this area will demand better road crossings and traffic management for pedestrians and residents. The road leading to Tescos and Aldiss desperately needs a safer crossing... But that's not unusual in Lewes, for example why do school kids still have to risk crossing a busy and fast road when walking from Wallands school to Landport etc.

You're certainly right about bus shelters and the welcome crossing on Malling Hill which can be very difficult to cross. I thought that the new crossing was due to be by the bus stop?

Perhaps residents should get together and start a campaign for bus shelters if this isn't being done already? I contacted the bus company and they said East Sussex Council were responsible for paying for bus shelters. The new crossing is replacing the current crossing with a road island near the Spinneys. I think one lower down by the Pet Shop and bus stop to Brighton/into town would be very useful for residents, and visitors to the pet shop and vets.

The Clayhill developers are paying for the new crossing, not East Sussex Council. I don't know if the creation of better pedestrian and traffic management is part of the building planning agreement, but it certainly seems it should be if more people are to be crossing busy roads. I suppose East Sussex Council pay for new signs and road markings, which again have been noticeable by their absence, although very visible in some local villages. All seems a bit arbitrary, and odd given that Sussex police headquarters are close by. I get the impression that no one wants to crack down on speeding traffic, so hopefully the new crossing will be a deterrent. Hopefully other areas of town can get crossings too, I've seen elderly people, plus families with kids in pushchairs, having to rush across of roads because of aggressive drivers who are breaking the speed limit.

Hopefully it will slow them down and keep them at a sensible speed as they head up the hill. Maybe they'll all stop at the traffic lights at the top too now.
