Parking at station

With the bridge finally nearing completion they have put down the white lines and it doesn't look like an improvement! The angled parking bays only allow 6 or 7 spaces when the road is plenty wide enough to have them at 90 degrees and fit more in. There is a whole area which used to be general parking now reserved for taxis and they have widened the pavement for no good reason. Hopefully the lines will just be ignored but I fear it may make easy pickings for the parking fine team.

No-one ever takes any notice of the parking rules anyway, so I don't see why having freshly painted lines will change that. I think the land is the property of Network Rail anyway, so the Blue Meanies have no jurisdiction in any case.

What would be nice is a proper marked pedestrian crossing which drivers respect - why no-one has been run over by a fast reversing taxi is anyone's guess.

Once those lovely houses are built down by the river, we might actually have a taxi service where one doesn't have to wait 45 minutes for a taxi at 11pm on a Saturday night !!

Yes walked along it tonight coming back from Brighton. Just looks like one side of the pavement needs finishing. When's the opening ?

It's opening 30th Oct. Council parking wardens will now be including it - so look out for tickets. Zebra crossing should be beneficial to some pedestrians. I think it's a temporary traffic order meaning they will be gathering feedback from ALL users. Too early to say if it will be better or worse.

@Doris - How much do you get paid for inserting irrelevant positive references to Santon's planned development?

Do you think it reasonable to be told there's only a couple of taxis in town on a Saturday night ? We need some more affluent, sociable residents to ensure the future and growth of local businesses. End of.

@Doris - Are you just teasing us? It's hard to tell these days. But if you've ever sat in the back of a taxi on a Saturday night, you'll hear how many calls they receive - the demand is huge. That's why they're not hanging around the taxi rank. But apart from Friday nights, the rest of the week is as dead as a doornail, so it wouldn't be economically viable. I suggest you phone ahead and book - it would be a lot less effort than building 400 houses.

Once Brighton & Hove City Council get round to licensing Uber, all the taxi drivers in Lewes will be signing up to provide the Uber service in Brighton.
A few posh residents in Lewes won't make any difference. Our local taxi service will disappear completely.
