It would be helpful if the edges of the pavement s were painted in fluorescent paint ,or even better if green lights were installed in the pavement edge as in France ,its not easy to pick up the road edges in the dark

What about driving on other unlit roads in the dark? Do you want miles and miles of little green lights from Lewes to East Grinstead, Haywards Heath or Uckfield for example? Put your lights on.....or go to specsavers.

Wait until the Phoenix estate is built, adding more traffic to roads that can't cope anyway.

I think the pavement should be arranged in lanes with flashing lights of different colours to deliniate the lanes for normal, sensible, human beings, mobile phone users and cyclists who think it's o.k. to ride on the pavement.

Over one hundred years since motor traffic became common on public roads, a few of the attitudes should change.
Motor vehicles are the life blood of our transport: and pay heavy taxes which subsidise other pubic services. Outside of urban areas pedestrians and cyclists should compulsory wear reflective clothing, and give way to normal motor traffic.
Also, on rural roads, a following motorist should not intimidate a driver at night by driving too close behind, when the first driver is following the limit of their headlights.
And, once following traffic has stopped behind at traffic lights or level crossings, drivers should apply the handbrake and remove their foot from the brake pedal to avoid dazzling the following driver with their stop lights.

There is no pavement in the tunnel .
No pedestrian access
Hence no lights
Maybe clean your headlights

Pavement is there and for use for emergency evacuation of people from their vehicles. That’s the end of this thread.

Just picking up on Drivers point about people driving ont he limit f their headlights. I agree but often the person in fornt has not got their lights on beam. This means their "limit" is very slow and their lights don't light enough to allow the following car to overtake, causing a queue. Front car should be on beam and when they are overtaken they drop to dipped lights and the new leader goes up to beam. It seems common sense to me but is often not done.

@david. Do you consider drivers coming towards you when you are driving “on beam”?

Of course, and you wouldn't be considering overtaking if someone was coming the other way. But when the road is clear the front car should be on main beam.
I agree overtaking seems to be a dying art. Everyone waits for a bit of dual carriageway.

It's not an art, it's a pointless exercise round here. Multiple speed limits, excessive numbers of vehicles, means you're just in a queue moving @ different speeds. I remember once following a large tractor and trailer @ 30 from Boship to the far end of the Uckfield by pass. Unable to get past anywhere.
