Action taken over Lewes Road traffic queues
8:51am Thursday 31st January 2013 in News
Queues on one of Brighton’s main roads have returned to a “manageable level”, council officials say.
Morning commuter traffic was nose to tail yesterday as Brighton and Hove City Council admitted there have been complaints made about the improvement works.
Earlier this week The Argus reported that tailbacks had left local residents demanding action as their journey times doubled.
It is hoped that the £6 million project will cut congestion and improve the Lewes Road area of Brighton, and work on creating a bus and cycle lane on the dual carriageway began in November.
A council spokesperson said: “We are monitoring the situation via the traffic control centre and changing signal timings where appropriate to ensure the traffic keeps flowing.”
