Langney Road Safety Concerns

Langney Shopping Centre exit to Langney Rise

Langney County Councillor, Alan Shuttleworth, is supporting a request from Langney Shopping Centre that East Sussex County Council consider imposing a NO RIGHT TURN out of Langney Shopping Centre into Langney Rise. Vehicles who wish to turn right would have a very short distance to the roundabout and could then proceed down the southwards carriageway.

Councillor Shuttleworth said,

“There have been accidents and near misses at this location as drivers get frustrated by the long wait and take unnecessary risks. I would support this change as it would not only make the situation safer during busy periods and would reduce the queuing to leave the Shopping Centre as vehicles would turn left as soon as a gap in traffic appears.”

Cllr Harun Miah said,

“This request could stop accidents and reduce the long queues and is worth considering. A No Right Turn sign would help reduce congestion and would be much safer.”

Lib Dem Parliamentary spokesperson, Josh Babarinde commented,

“Queuing congestion also leads to more air pollution. It makes sense to ask the County Council Road Safety team to look at this issue.”

Councillor Shuttleworth is seeking a site meeting with East Sussex County Council Highways and Road Safety officers with the Langney Shopping Centre management team to consider this suggestion. He added,

“I would welcome any thoughts from shoppers and residents on this suggestion via my councillor email address.”
