Bishopstone Bridge cycle lane now safer

Although it has not yet been formally opened, the cycle lane under Bishopstone Bridge is now usable. This is a very much needed link between the Ouse Estuary Trail and the cycle lane on Seaford seafront. It is now possible for families and beginners to cycle safely from Edinburgh Road, Seaford, to Newhaven Town.

The road crossings at the Newhaven end of the Ouse Estuary Trail (by the roundabout) were made cycle friendly last year, making it easy to navigate to/from Sainsbury’s, The Drove and The Flying Fish. This opens up the possibility for more club rides at level 1 & 2 – get in touch if you want us to organise some rides using this route.  Click here for our Grading System

Completion of this section was one of the priorities identified by Cycle Seahaven, and we are extremely pleased to see it near completion. There are still planning difficulties regarding the proposed 1.8m wooden fence alongside the caravan park, which is why the official opening has been delayed and the blue barriers are still up. Cycle Seahaven will continue their partnership with local councils to improve cycle safety in the Seahaven area.
