Bit of a cock-up, a 2-month overrun on a job that was only supposed to take a couple of months.
However, the diversion seems to work well and I haven't noticed any increase in the traffic to the west of the station. Don't know what it's like on the other side though, or for people dropping off and picking up passengers in the rush hours.

Not a cock up. Once the road surface was removed, it revealed much more decay than was evident from the survey. Should be good for another century now.

at least it's been done now and the buses can go back to normal routes. After all the argy bargy about who had responsibility fr what it is a relief that everything is being sorted out properly.

But why have they painted the bridge in that disgusting green and yucky cream ?? What happened to the beautiful dark dusky blue ? They look like Southern region colours - are they ?

The old Southern Railway colours were green and cream. I always though they looked rather nice.

Green bottom of wall - black line - cream above. Just like S.R.

The only station in the area painted in Southern colours is Horsted Keynes. And yes, it does look nice; and has been used as a backdrop in many film scenes over the years. If the bridge at Lewes is indeed painted in Southern colours, they why not paint the rest of the station to match?

Will it have been strengthened so that buses can run over it again like they used to?
Bus stop outside the stain meant

Bus stop outside the station meant I could at least catch one home - rather than miss it walking across bridge as it turns right at the Lansdown...

I agree with newspeak - the bridge shouldn't be acting as giant advert for Southern trains. Who have just been taken over anyway. So will the corporate colours change again ??

Seems a shame the platform 1 & 2 side entrance seems to be getting ignored in terms of a lick of paint to go with the shiny bridge work

Another thing that's being ignored is residents parking rights. We pay full price for a permit with no discount, despite having half of the bays we use suspended. Which means it is rare to be able to park within 500 yards of home. and to cap it off we can't unload on the yellow lines outside Erawan as they have recently been 'upgraded' to no stopping at all, and residents are getting ticketed if they dare to load/unload. However it is still permissable to stop on the opposite side of the road and block the traffic. Also, now the suspension has been put back until 1st October, 7 months.
