Our local council ‘couldn’t run a bath’

VISITORS to Hastings can be forgiven if they think that they have driven onto a building site by mistake.

As they head down St Helens Park Road from the roundabout they will find themselves in the middle of a tailback of 40 or 50 cars, waiting at the temporary traffic lights by a 50-yard section of fenced off roadworks.

Having got past this, they reach the seafront and find that because another section of road and pavement is fenced off, which includes dozens of parking meter spaces, there is nowhere to park.

All this is at the peak of the holiday season, thus prompting a steady flow of traffic, heading for Eastbourne, which thought about it and did their repairs in the off-season.

Hastings Borough Council run a seaside resort? It couldn’t run a bath.
