Long delays on A27 in East Sussex

The Argus: Long delays on A27 in East Sussex Long delays on A27 in East Sussex

Drivers are facing long queues this morning following flooding on the A27 between Polegate and Beddingham.
 

Temporary traffic lights have been put in place which is adding to the delays.
 

One motorist said the lights added 45 minutes on to his journey to Brighton.
 

He said: “One of the frustrating things is when I finally got to the flooding the highways men were just sat in the cab of their van doing nothing.”
 

Have you been caught up in the delays?

The lights make more sense when one lane is effectively closed. Last week a cowboy in a truck drove through the flood at speed, completely drenching our car and ruining visibility for a few seconds. Fortunately, all windows were shut and no-one stopped in front.
Of course, it is a farce that this major trunk road is down to one lane; it should be a dual carriageway- but that is another story.
N.B.- no names mentioned!

You can thank the conservative minister for no dual carriageway for the A27. It has needed to become a dual carriageway for over 20 years but still nothing - how many more people need to die on this treacherous road before the work is finally carried out?

I thought it was Norman Baker who was the leader of the anti widening of the A27 brigade.

It was; and probably still is. He is a "temporary tory" at the moment, being a minister in the coalition.
