“THE HEART OF YOUR CITY IS UNDER THREAT…..HAVE YOUR SAY”

We the undersigned petition Brighton and Hove City Council to pause design work on the Old Steine road plans and enter into full open consultation with all interested parties to seek a solution that is beneficial to all.

Why is this important?

We are concerned that the current Old Steine road plans may increase congestion resulting in greater pollution and deterioration of air quality. We are concerned journey times and travel distances will increase and cause vehicle displacement. We are concerned of the potential negative impact to our tourist economy, businesses generally and our outdoor live events.

We all agree that investment in the Old Steine area will positively impact the city. By working with all interested parties, we believe that better solutions are achievable, enhancing accessibility for the less able and further improving provision for cycling and walking and greater use of public transport.

Reasons for signing

  • The changes in the roundabout seem completely counter-intuitive. In my experience congestion is not helped by the way the pedestrian lights phase leading to cars getting stuck on the roundabout and jammed tailbacks. There is room for everybody - cars, cyclists and pedestrians. It just needs a little more thought and imagination. Turning it into one way and a junction is only go to make things worse on this key West/East intersection.
  • To lose the round about and make it one way is barbaric, longer travel time and higher emissions what are you even thinking!?
  • It simply does not need to be entirely revamped or changed, it will add to the congestion of the town causing more pollution in the long run, the council should seriously reconsider this ludicrous idea and put money in to parts of Brighton that have desperately needed it for a long time now. instead of once again jumping in to an idea that doesn't work in the long run.
