A petition has been launched to fund upgrades to two crossings in Old Town.
It has been started by councillor John Ungar:
“We want the Zebra Crossing on Church Street, Eastbourne to be upgraded to a Pelican Crossing.
We also want a pedestrian phase installed on the traffic lights at the junction with Summerdown Road, Church Street, Victoria Drive and East Dean Road, Eastbourne.
The County Council (offices pictured) has acknowledged that both these crossings meet the criteria to be upgraded but has not agreed to fund these upgrades.
Both these crossings are used by children on their way to and from school and the roads are very busy.”
