Congestion will get worse

The link road proceeds apace yet the planning application for an improved link for any traffic emerging onto Queensway and travelling to the A21 or The Ridge has not yet been submitted and work may start as early as 2015/16.

The congestion caused by the junction of The Ridge West and Junction Road is bad enough at rush hours now.

A relatively simple and cheap aid would be to put rush hour traffic lights here (and possibly also where Junction Road joins the A21).

This congestion will surely get worse as soon as the link road is opened but I fear we are too far from East Sussex HQ for it to care about this or the additional traffic on The Ridge.
