Public meeting discusses Seven Dials revamp
9:50am Wednesday 19th December 2012 in News
Controversial plans to revamp a notorious roundabout were the focus of a public meeting.
Brighton and Hove City Council has been asking people for their views on the Seven Dials junction, north-west of Brighton station.
The local authority believes steps can be taken to ease congestion and make it safer for pedestrians and road users.
But members of the Dials North West Community Association believe it will create extra traffic in neighbouring residential streets.
About 150 people attended the meeting at St Luke’s church in Old Shoreham Road, Hove, to discuss the proposal.
After a presentation from engineers about the scheme, the local authority confirmed it would make some alterations to the plans, such as Vernon Terrace and Bath Street.
Millie Ferguson, of Addison Road, said: “For me some of the changes are unrealistic so I think the meeting was definitely needed.
“They are assuming the plans have been approved when actually no vote has been taken.”
A decision on the revised plans will be made by the council’s transport committee in January.
