Thought I might start a thread to inform others to the state of roads around the town. Please put the name of your road, and whether it's clear or not. By driveable, I mean driving on clear tarmac or concrete with no risk of skidding.
Eridge Green - Ice (undriveable)
Landport Road - Ice (undriveable)

Pells was clear until some total helmet parked across the road in a Jag, it's slipped out of the way now but the roads are still lethal!....cam a right cropper earlier and feel a bit sick (know from rugby days that this may be slight concussion)....

Sun Street - perfectly driveable
Toronto Terrace where I've been parked - very icy. I don't think I'll be able to move my car for days. Any ideas?

Spences Lane/Orchard Road/Spences Field - Patchy gritted areas, mainly ice and snow. Certainly there'll be no cars coming up Spences Field this evening.

Landport's not exactly "undrivable". I've been out today (FWD car) and whilst you've got to be careful, it's by no means impassable.

You might get down Mount Harry Road, but I don't fancy your chances of getting up it. Might be ok in a 4x4.

Mount Harry Road still only passable downhill, and Mr C-T reports a nasty patch of black ice near the junction with Windover Crescent!

Genius planning by road gritters let's grit Windover Crescent (the one on the right as you go up Mount Harry) 3 times in 24 hours and leave the bus route part of windover crescent alone not once in 5 days.

Malling isn't too bad unless you want to get down the side roads, they are still very icy in places.

Pmsl re the gritting! Bleddy idiots. I don't know why they don't just grit the bus route when they do Nevill Road, it would hardly take them out of their way and the hill between the green and the lights could have a double dose of grit, which wouldn't hurt. By the time they tried to grit the top of the Nevill, the lorry couldn't get beyond East Way.
No, Nosey, I don't have a chum called Chum.

For pedestrians, the path that connects the High Street to Rotten Row running alongside ESCC car park is melting a bit now, but was a sheet of ice from the High Street end to the gate half way down which leads to the side entrance for ESCC offices. The bottom half, which council employees use, is literally carpeted with grit, including snowball sized lumps just sitting on top. When I first saw that I had to laugh at the breathtaking contempt ESCC has shown for anyone in Lewes who doesn't work for them.

Well, Mr C-T seems to have managed to get his van moved at last (at least, he hasn't reappeared after setting off for work over an hour ago) so it seems likely that it's now possible to get up Mount Harry Road.

I saw one this morning, but he was pushing his bike, so I suppose he was really a pedestrian.

re County Hall - although I'm sure they need to ensure their employees health and safety - the contrast between the road through the county hall car park and the icy pavements in the St Anne's Hill and Church area was extreme. I walked through the county hall car park. Must have been about the clearest road in Lewes!

That's Front Wheel Drive, not 4WD, Lance. Shouldn't you be training for the Tour? Oh, and I've been using a mountain bike as well (bit sketchy, that.)
