Pete Fairless… That’s the A259, right?

Wendy Weaver… Pity the people living on the alternative roads.

Brian Adams… no need for this enough roads closed around hastings for roadworks

Els Wilcox… It’s not for roadworks it for world free car day.

Glenn Piper… I hope that includes bicycles

Richard J Porter… Yep, the A259, South Coast Trunk Road, Folkestone – Honiton Trunk Road. The only East – West way to cross the country south of the M25/M20. A road that leads to the Channel Ports from the West. Won’t cause any issues for all that through traffic, HGVs, coaches holiday makers and so on making their way to The Channel Tunnel and Dover. What will they do? Send them up Harley Shute to Sedlescombe Road and the Ridge? Or maybe the Link Road and the Ridge?

Paul Chenery… Yet another mega-cock up from a ‘department of f* stupid ideas’. Maybe the same type of idiot that put the bus lanes along Bexhill Road, pushing traffic passing the bus stop at glyne gap into the path of oncoming traffic.

Pete Brazier… Great idea but where and how are we going to Park the Car?

Paul Morfey… Few people seem to realise how nice life would be with far fewer cars!!?!
