We need to solve our traffic problems

As a regular delivery driver working in the Brighton area and a local resident I would like to comment upon the Vogue Gyratory scheme.

It is obvious that at the moment due to the ‘improvements’ the tail-back of traffic heading north out of Brighton reaches as far back as the Level which has an impact on East-West traffic using Union Road and Elm Grove (one of the ‘alternate routes’ that we have been encouraged to use).

With the schools returning this week and the university about to commence the new term soon, this traffic will only get much, much worse.

The tailbacks will eventually reach St Peter’s Church and beyond.

Might I suggest that while these improvements are in progress, the council suspend the bus lanes north of the gyratory perhaps as far as Coldean Lane, thereby allowing two lanes of traffic to clear the log-jam quickly and efficiently?

I look forward to any comments regarding this idea.

I think your suggestions are probably a good idea. However, if you expect this council to do anything remotely intelligent about the traffic situation I'm afraid you're going to be disappointed. The council in their psychopathic wisdom love to see the city gridlocked, so that they can push their anti car ideology.

as with seven dials, remove traffic lights around the city and replace with roundabouts where possible and raised zebra crossings. cars naturally slow for roundabouts and raised crossings and pedestrians learn to look. it also eliminates all the vile road furniture. everything would work naturally but its too simple and cheap for this ridiculous jobsworth council.

Your suggestions are perfect and would solve the gridlock problem,Unfortunatel
y Mr.Davey wouldnt agree as he hates cars, loves gridlock and screwing up all our Roads and must love the idea of increasing Co2 emissions in a perverse way.

I'm a plumber in Brighton and I'm absolutely fed up with all the road works in Brighton.

It also seem to me that they are reducing road widths, the road going up past Amex looks like it's going to be one lane and also the road around the Brighton station area is also going to be one lane!

How on earth is this helping the flow of traffic?? I'm constantly stuck in jams all over the city wasting my time and reducing my income.

The time it takes to get places is crazy! The Greens need to go! I'm sick of it and them!
