Is this related to the north street development? The plans showed the top of east street being blocked off but I can't remember a roundabout at boots?

Can't imagine there's too much there for the greeny types to moan about. Loss of car lanes, slower speed of traffic guaranteed, etc. Typical modern day planning...

What possible use is there for a roundabout outside Boots? Surely there'll still need to be pedestrian lights to let people across the road so it won't improve traffic flow going straight on to the station which I guess is the idea?

Some of the designs for the junction there removed the traffic lights and had a 'shared space' area instead. So basically people wandering in the road and cars getting through when they can. Sounds OK at quiet times but I could imagine it being chaos on a Saturday when there are people everywhere and lots of traffic.

They want to close East street at the top and send all the traffic up School hill and then make Little East Street single lane, Ha Ha, that will be a Absolute Utter Nightmare, im glad i work in Ringmer, and as stated above, what is the use of a Roundabout outside Boots.

I love this forum. None of you have actually looked at the plans but you all manage to have a good moan. Chris Grayling (nice name), I defer to your evident planning expertise but you might want to consider the large road that is going through the new development that will take all the current traffic heading to Offham Road etc away from East Street. The plans will greatly improve the whole area.

Where does the large road route all that traffic.
Surely it's not going past the pells and up St Johns Terrace is it?
That would just devastate the whole Pells area.

So at the worst bottleneck in Lewes they're going to simultaneously add access for hundreds of new houses, plus downgrade the existing road infrastructure at the same time?
Genius...
How about routing them our further north (and avoiding add the traffic into town in the first place) and maybe a new bridge for vehicles down by the footbridge (alleviating traffic on the existing roads not adding to it) that gives a second valuable route across the river?

Neighbour do you think that the traffic will flow through new development or will it be jammed up with everything going on down there (im not having a go i would like your Opinion... you got my name lol )

I strongly support these plans. The merging traffic from Market Street and West Street combined with cars pulling out of East Street and crossing over to head down North Street is downright dangerous at the moment. Allowing cars leaving waitrose to turn right and leave town is eminently sensible. So much easier and safer for pedestrians to get the bus station from the north cars currently fly round from the Causeway and up East street without indicating. This would all be a major improvement.

I've never seen a single crash at the top of East Street, it's not dangerous or difficult, you just need to be aware of the cars around you and keep an eye out for idiots with satnav changing lane at the last minute.

Have just looked at the plan... WTF is an "Implied" zebra crossing (three of them are marked at the Boots roundabout. Something either IS or IS NOT a zebra crossing, or has the Highway code been updated to include "implied zebra crossings"? Does a motorist have to give way, or can they just "imply" that they are giving way, and if a pedestrin using an implied crossing gets knocked down, does the unfortunate motorist get an "implied" penalty, or an actual penalty if he/she is found to be at fault.
How on earth can road traffic law be enforced at an "implied" zebra crossing....
