WTF are they digging up now ? I know about the problems in Malling street but i've just spent half an hour trying to get through the town. Didn't bother in the end and ended up going to Waitrose. Looks like there's traffic lights on the bridge and the town is gridlocked !!!!!

Drove into Seaford town center, parked, shopped and went home.
Life is still sweet though I expect that undemocratic Matthew Lock (Con - Merchants) will alter it as soon as he possibly can.

Good for him/her. Pedestrians are generally ignored or given rock bottom priority below lorries, cars, roadworks, cyclists and bags of rubbish.....

only problem is bridge crossing is manned by THREE blokes - AND is in a useless place - I watched them cycle the lights FOUR times Sat AM and two people cross - end result hold-up from South end of tunnel at the ROUNDABOUT through to Offham Rd BEYOND Kingsley - how much is this crossing costing the taxpayer AND the environment with all those static cars - took me 39 minutes from roundabout to Landport - P'Ah!

One policeman controlling the traffic would have been cheaper and better than 3 men in high visibility jackets watching the traffic lights change automatically.

It was a hilarious mind fart of a situation..I counted 4 hivs jacket dudes with health and safety hardhats manning 1 button so 1.5 people could cross the road every 5 minutes and cause a massive tailback throught the whole of Lewes (as far as the station)..3 of the blokes were sitting in chairs in an "advisory" role
Britain I love you but you are fcking stupid at times

crossing not even in the right place as the footpath on the town side by Drs surgery is closed there - anyone wanting to cross from the West would do so on the causeway whilst heading towards Teasco or else they come through the car-park outside the Dorset and cross at the roundabout - NO ONE walks to the South side of the crossing when the footpath up the bank is shut - ABSOLUTE MONEY WASTING IDIOTS - our councillors would never get a job in private industry!!!!!!

I think it's frustrating, especially when I need to get to the docs surgery. Britain has gone road works crazy, and Lewes is now as bad as Brighton when it comes to trying to get out of the town or from A to B!
