Lewes Road

Ever since the A22 was modernised there has been a lack of (if fact none) maintenance at the dip in dual carriageway drainage after Copthorne roundabout. The gullies and channels are still full and blocked, with young shrubs and trees growing, at least twice a year.

Last week, in fact, the council or someone cut the grass etc with extensive coning of the road.

Why on earth someone cannot take the opportunity to clean this area is beyond comprehension! In the winter the southbound carriage way freezes over with excess water unable to drain away.

Save your gloom and doom...

I do wish that the merchants of doom and gloom about Brexit would simply hold their fire until it becomes clear that those who imagine a golden future when Britain leaves the EU are either proved right or wrong, in much the same way as those who voted to remain in the EEC in the referendum of 1975 kept their silence till, some time later, it became apparent that the so called ‘Common Market’ was to become a single federal state.
