A stupid idea to remove bus lay-by

WOULD it be possible through the medium of your newspaper to discover the rationale behind the decision to remove all the bus stop laybys along the Eastbourne/Hailsham road towards Polegate?

With the increase in traffic, which will be caused by the residents of the new Bluebell estate, added onto the already busy road, the chaos that will occur now the buses have to stop on the road, therefore holding up the traffic, will be immense - to say nothing of the potential for accidents as impatient motorists attempt to overtake the stationary buses.

It seems to me and all I talk to that this decision was not properly thought through at all.

So would the faceless bureaucrat who took this crazy decision like to explain himself?

FELICITY WILLIAMS,

Dover Road, Polegate.
