Unacceptable Delays With New SpeedWatch Site Approval
For almost two years we've been trying to get a SpeedWatch site approved for use on the A272 through Piltdown. Whilst the streamlining of an all encompassing Emergency Rescue Service that includes Fire, Police and Ambualnce is underway it seems no-one is able to agree new sites. PRA has complained to our District Councillor Roy Galley and he is now pursuing the matter on our behalf.
We won't give up and we'll keep you posted.
Speed Watch results
The Road Survey results will be revealed on Saturday at the Piltdown Residents Association AGM - 9th January 2016, Fletching Church 10:30 - 12:00. All welcome.
New Speed watch dates: 30th November - 6th December
East Sussex County Council has stated that there will be some temporary road works on the 20th November along Shortbridge Road and the speed/road survey will commence Monday 30th November 2015 for seven days and 24 hrs each day.
