The law-abiding subjects of Cliffe received a pamphlet last night - 'Access Arrangements for Cliffe Pedestrian Zone' - informing us how to use the one way system. (That is, don't drive down it unless you are going to Bear Yard, Harveys Access Road, a disable parking space (?!) or a loading bay, and as it is a one way system you are never allowed to drive down it THE WRONG WAY - geddit?) "Drivers caught contravening these restrictions could be prosecuted by Sussex Police".

Did anyone else in town receive the pamphlet? Surely its you lot over the other side of the bridge who need to read and memorize. You're the muppets who insist on driving through there after all.

And confused, bikes are allowed as it is a PEDESTRIANIZED road now which apparently also means bikes too.

How is a driver supposed to get to a house in Morris Road, then?

Yes, some of us in other parts of the town do know all about the pedestrian access. thats because ESCC officers privately admitted that it would force more traffic onto the already busy roads going through the town near North st. Sadly they neglected to mention it in the consultation information, or to Councillors who approved the scheme.
I think the pedestrianization is great, woulod like more, but not to the detriment of everyone else. Just another demonstartion of the complete lack of joined up thinking in a very challenging, but special town.
In other news. Nice to see that ESCC have put those massive signs up near the Newmarket, and cut the trees back. (as previously mentioned on this rather widely read Forum) Would be nice if they would now put road markings down to indicate where this invisible, and deadly crossing is, to motorists like myself, who miss it, even though we are looking out for the danger.
Piss up, brewery. couldn't organize.

I see - I hadn't realised they'd made that two way. It's not quite as bonkers as I thought then.
So if I had to collect something heavy from the pet shop, would I drive up the pedestrian bit or down the two-way bit?

yes i picked up a leaflet today, although i live in the cliffe it never came through my door, still leaves the point of road markings at the end of one way into two way on a junction, and this week sat at the jht, watched most cars turn left and over the bridge, lack of signs in the right place,

come out of Argos/JHT and turn RIGHT is NOT over the bridge - but down the pedestrianised bit - surely they should turn LEFT to leave and go over the bridge? or should they turn right and go down th epedestrianised bit what exactly are we saying here???

Hang on a minute, Confused by name ... clearly has mistaken his left from his right. When I was in the cadet force, I had problems telling my left from my right and I ordered my platoon to right wheel under a bus. Fortunately they obeyed my intention and went the other way - as indeed I did. You probably didn't need to know that.

is not confused, theres a no left turn sign on argos wall, (got it so far ?) however most cars do turn left over the hump bridge, ( still ok so far ?) council idea is to come out of bear yard ie jht/argos and turn right down the so called pedestrian bit, all just odd to me, sashimi and hang on a minute, try wearing a glove on one hand until you got it,

I still have trouble with left and right. So does a mate of mine, and when of us is navigating and the other driving, we often both get it wrong and end up going the right way.
I stand no chance of getting the new improved Cliffe High Street right.

You can't expect the council to do anything about it, I saw one of their "Animal enforcement officer" vans (Dog wardens they used to be called) merrily drive down the length of the Cliffe with no attempt to go into Bear Yard or do any loading or stop in a disabled space. If I didn't know better I'd say they just couldn't be arsed to drive round the entire one way system in town to get from the back of the precinct to South Street. Sadly, I didn't get the number plate...

Confused, I suggest that you consult your copy of the highway code to re-familiarise yourself with road signage.
< = left

what a bunch of muppets on this site, go down and have a look, instead of sitting in your ivory towers, you tell me, if you exit from bear lane, in which direction is the hump cliffe bridge, or lets make it easy and bring bills into it, that should make very easy, leave argos car park get to the bills junction now what can you see to the left and what can you see to the right, seesh !! .

Ah I understand now, 'Confused'. I agree that they should have put the no left sign in Bear yard at the end of the road. It may be that there was not a suitable place that did not tarnish the visage a building like Harvey's shop. Or that they did not wish to put up a pole at the end of Bear yard.
Finally I cannot see a problem with the signage where Cliffe HS meets Morris road. I shall have another look.

Confused, I agree with what you are saying, but in your very first post you actually said "come out of the jht and look at argos, sign says no RIGHT turn over the hump bridge". I think you really meant to say "no left turn". That could be the reason for the misunderstanding perhaps ?

so it does, blushing, still poor sings though, was in the riverside this morn and in 20 mins 4 vehicles came over the bridge, and am sure they think they cant go down the cliffe, so maybe its no just me confused,
