East Sussex County Council are proposing to
implement a new signalised pedestrian crossing facility across the
western arm of the A259 Denmark Place/A2101 Albert Road junction in
Hastings. Additionally, it is proposed to remove the existing
staggered pedestrian crossing on the eastern arm of the junction
and replace it with a straight-across crossing and to provide a
signalised crossing over Albert Road. The report summarises the
responses to the stakeholder consultation and public
‘infotation’ and seeks approval to continue to the
detailed design stage and construction.
37.1 The Lead Member considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport.
37.2 The Lead Member RESOLVED to (1) Note the responses to the stakeholder consultation and public information exercise on the proposed pedestrian crossing improvements set out in this report; and
(2) Approve the proposed changes to the pedestrian crossing facilities at the junction of the A259 Denmark Place/A2101 Albert Road to improve accessibility to the seafront and encourage more active travel and progress the scheme to detailed design and construction.
37.3 Improvements to the pedestrian crossing facilities at the A259 Denmark Place/A2101 Albert Road junction in Hastings town centre will help to improve accessibility to the seafront and encourage more active travel. In turn, this will contribute towards the County Council’s commitment of net zero carbon emissions by 2050 or earlier if possible, and the Government’s decarbonising transport agenda.
37.4 No objections have been received following the stakeholder consultation and public information on the proposals although requests for additional provisions have been received which will be considered and incorporated where possible as part of the detailed design.
