LAST Thursday 11.30am, the queue to get into Hastings started about three-quarters of a mile before the junction with the A28. The reason? Cars and numerous HGVs queuing to turn right into Junction Road to get onto The Ridge and blocking the traffic going on into Hastings.
Surely it isn’t beyond the wit of ESCC to put a roundabout there? There’s plenty of room with a big grassy area used for nothing at present. If they can’t run to a roundabout, then at least a filter lane for vehicles turning right. There are plenty of these all the way down Sedlescombe Road North even for cul-de-sacs.
A bit of paint on the road would ease congestion and save a lot of people a lot of time.
