Residents have welcomed the arrival of some double yellow lines at the end of their road.

They had initially been left disappointed saying there had been a delay and that they were supposed to be put in place following a development at Seaford Primary School in Wilkinson Way.

David Hitchin, who lives in the same road, said permission for two mobile classrooms was granted subject to some road improvements being completed before the new classrooms were occupied but weeks after pupils started the new term the community was still waiting for double yellow lines to be put in place at the junction of Wilkinson Way and Belgrave Road.

But much to his joy they were finished last week and Mr Hitchin hopes that it will alleviate traffic problems in the area.

However, he is hoping that the issue of pot holes appearing at the end of the road will also be resolved.

He said, “The road is starting to break up between Wilkinson Way and Belgrave Road.

“But getting the double yellow lines is a great improvement.

“It will be a tremendous help to people coming out of Wilkinson Way into Belgrave Road because visibility at that junction had been restricted.”

An East Sussex County Council spokesman said, “We’re always grateful for people reporting potholes and other problems with the roads or pavements.

“The local highway steward will take a look and arrange for these to be repaired.”
