Lights to blame for traffic jams

REGARDING the Easter Bank Holiday traffic jams at Rock-a-Nore, this was undoubtedly due to the lights – not abnormal traffic flow.

I have lived in Hastings all my life and the town is always busy during Bank Holidays. Nothing like the traffic chaos this Easter weekend has happened before.

Remove the lights and have pedestrian crossings. Build another storey on the existing car park at Rock-a-Nore.

I heard loads of complaints from both visitors and locals at the weekend. The town was crowded – unfortunately, I am sure many who came to Hastings will say: ‘Never again’.

I hope not because I trust the highways department will have this sorted out by the summer.
