LETTER Bus lane plan a waste of money

In response to Annemarie Field’s wish for a bus lane, I’m sure she can remember the fight the residents of Seaside had to stop this ridiculous idea East Sussex County Council had.

As a reminder, the plan was to build a lane the length of Seaside Recreation Ground with the idea that buses would jump the so-called congestion to simply join the congestion that starts further on.

It had a complex traffic signal system, plans to reduce the pavement width near residents’ homes and making side roads one way. The bus lane was deferred due to lack of supporting evidence. And was a ridiculous waste of money.
