(To take your minds off the Station St diversion).
The Southover sufferers from speed-humps may like to use this new research by Imperial College when lobbying for their removal or adaptation. Seems that they significantly increase pollution.

Just blinking well slow down and they won't be a problem. Drivers hurtle down this street like it was the A27

I think it was the residents that requested them in the first place and a fortune has been spent on them over the years.

I don't know why they bothered. Southover is so badly potholed now, they've got extra traffic calming for free.

Drivers "hurtle" along Southover?? Really? How's that possible given it's a busy road and the parked cars basically make it single lane? However I don't begrudge the locals who MAY have requested the speed bumps. They've been proven not to work but perhaps they didn't know that at the time?

Total waste of time. Pain in the backside. The idiotic parking does the job without wasting money on granite setts (would have been a dollop of tarmac anywhere else)
As this is a route to Kingston and Brighton Rd, plus the busy and inadequate route to Mountfield Rd (football, tip, schools etc), do away with on street parking and stick a speed camera up, or some traffic lights, or a crossing lady, or a busy-body with a radar gun.

Good post Meldrew. It's about time Southover High Street stopped pretending it's anything other than a major thoroughfare in Lewes.

It is easily possible to close Southover High Street to all through traffic and create a quiet refuge for pedestrians and cyclists in the town near beautiful pubs such as the King's Head and the traditional Anne of Cleves House. Visitors to the sports club can walk (I do) and, in any case, it's impossible to get larger modern cars under the railway arch. Now the bridge by the railway station has been strengthened, there is no reason for anyone to pollute this narrow residential road any more. Cars can go up Station Street then along the High Street to Western Road. My family would be so happy to see this. I can't believe how noisy it is sometimes.

My range glides over them and i can go as fast as i like as other cars move out the way when i boot it straight at them whilst they try to get around the parked cars - therefore no problem

Ali: you are confusing me with someone else. I spend a lot of money in this town as I expected to, on housing, on schools, on workmen who've made it possible to live here, and in various different shops.

Southover residents never wanted traffic calming. They wanted less traffic. They were given road humps, despite advice at the time that this would mean more pollution and noise.
