ROUTINE CONGESTION - It's no joke. You can see how often this bit of the High Street is dug up from the repair patches. It's like an annual event. East Sussex County Council get their heads together to arrange for the most awkward time run some more cables, sewerage or other pipes. But, why did they not make provision for that before? It's worse than living in London, traffic wise, but you are in the country, cut off from supermarkets and other stores.

 

 

 

The potholes along the A271 are legendary, making it an extremely dangerous road. The reason for this is that the so-called 'A' road is actually 'B' road standard. It is narrow and carries a much higher level of heavy traffic than a road of this standard was designed to carry. But the Highways authority in East Sussex, will not make improvements, despite huge revenues from road fund licenses. Only about 5% of your money goes to maintaining our roads, to keep MOD contractors and MP second houses paid up.

 

Likewise, CIL (community infrastructure levy) payments are not being spent locally where development is taking place. Like your vehicle tax, it is being siphoned off for other purposes. There are many reasons for this, allegedly because Wealden and East Sussex County Council invested in fossil fuel companies. Hence, the civil servant officers are diverting these monies to prop up their pensions.

Suicide Junction, Herstmonceux village and Death Hill

 

SUICIDE JUNCTION 2021 - Is this one of the most dangerous junctions in Sussex? That is the view of many local residents who objected most strongly to the proposal that may see up to 70 more houses access an 'A' road that is itself substandard and overloaded. It is a pothole nightmare, another issue of concern to people that are forced to drive along this road. This section of road and the hill, the subject of attention is forever being dug up. Meaning that accidents are even more likely to happen, apart from the idiotic placing of this junction.
