HC Deb 20 April 1926 vol 194 cc1043-5W

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the dangerous condition of the road crossing Pevensey Marshes between Eastbourne and Bexhill; whether a grant has been made from the Road Fund for the reconstruction or repair of this road; and whether, in view of the volume of summer traffic on this road, ho will take steps to secure its repair at an early date?

Colonel ASHLEY:

I am aware of the condition of this road, a part of which has been classified Class 1, and grants have been made from the Road Fund for the repair of this length. The section between Eastbourne and Pevensey is not classified, but I am informed that the highway authority concerned is preparing an improvement scheme with a view to submitting an application for financial assistance from the Road Fund. A scheme has been submitted for improving the length in Bexhill, and this is now under consideration by my Department.
