Park Road not a quiet cul-de-sac

WITH reference to last week’s article on the demend to reduce speed limits sooner in Park Road, Hellingly, (Hailsham edition, p2) for readers’ benefit, this section of the road is not a quiet cul-de-sac but a very heavily used secondary route north.

It is also classified by ESCC as the main haulage and access route to the Hellingly Roebuck Park development and is used by heavy construction plant, haulage lorries, buses, and many of the current residents vehicles.

Despite several years of this much increased volume and speed of traffic there has been a marked delay by those responsible in implementing the traffic calming/ speed reductions that were planned to make the existing residents life a little safer and comfortable.
