ESCC is known for its preference for road building whilst dragging its feet on support for bus, rail, pedestrians and cycling infrastructure.. It has taken little or no action for many years to improve safety in rural areas for villages and for rural lanes to reduce speed limits and improve safety for horse riders, walkers, cyclists and bus travellers. Traffic calming does not appear to be in ESCC’s vocabulary especially for villages with many pleas for action being consistently turned down. ESCC need to take a much more robust approach to ensure new housing and commercial developments are in locations where there are good public transport links so as to reduce the reliance on car travel an to reduce transport global warming emissions. According to the International Energy Agency transport has the highest reliance on fossil fuels of any sector and accounted for 37% of CO2 global warming emissions from end‐use sectors in 2021.
The council needs to have practical policies on transport interchange for walking, cycling, bus and rail travel to name a few areas. Please put your view forward to counter the road lobby! This consultation is important for all those who live, work or visit East Sussex. Hopefully we can all put forward sustainable transport solutions!
