To consider the petition calling on the County
Council to improve road safety on the B2116
5.1 The Lead Member considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport.
5.2 The Lead Member RESOLVED to advise the petitioners that:
1) During June 2020, East Sussex Highways undertook repairs east of the junction with Plumpton Lane. The work included a large patch repair to address the undulation in the road and a new road marking to highlight the edge of carriageway.
2) The B2116/A275 junction has been identified as a Local Safety Scheme. Works will be carried out, this financial year, to improve the existing signing on the approaches to the junction to encourage lower speeds and highlight the need for drivers to give way.
3) The B2116 between the County boundary near Keymer and A275 junction near Offham is one of the routes identified for a Strategic Casualty Reduction study during 2021/2022.
5.3 A number of actions, as detailed in the report, have been taken to address the petitioner’s concerns and improve the road safety of the B2116. In addition, the B2116 is an identified route for a Strategic Casualty Reduction study, and a range of safety improvements will be considered for implementation later this financial year following a detailed analysis of the available crash data.
