Road narrowed.

Cycling during Covid-19

It’s been brilliant seeing so many more people cycling and walking at the moment. An unforeseen issue is the lack of space, especially with the required social distancing.

On 9 May, Transport Secretary Grant  Shapps announced:

“Fast-tracked statutory guidance, published today and effective immediately, will tell councils to reallocate roadspace for significantly-increased numbers of cyclists and pedestrians.”

I have a short window of opportunity (ideally before Friday 15th May) to put forward suggestions highlighting problem areas / routes in the Peacehaven, Newhaven & Seaford areas.

Of particular importance will be paths where there are no easy alternatives – but not enough room to pass with 2m distance. This could be because they are narrow or just really busy now.

If you have any comments either leave them below or send directly to me: campaigns@cycleseahaven.org.uk

Thanks

Simon
