YESTERDAY The Friends of Eastbourne Seafront won a battle with South East Water over the seafront traffic lights.

The Friends posted: “These traffic lights on Royal Parade are causing long queues, disruption and disturbance to those living nearby.

The work by South East Water is complete and yet we are told that the traffic lights will not be removed until Monday. This is not good enough, we don’t want 4 or 5 days more of unnecessary disruption. It’s not necessary that they are there so Clancy/South East Water please get them moved.”

And later: “Pleased to say the lights have now been removed! People power!”

Great work!
