What B&HCC Say and What is Reality 4

Brighton & Hove City Council’s Traffic Model

Rottingdean High Street is very narrow and the A259 West and East also have narrow lanes. The buses and heavy or wide vehicles often have to straddle both lanes in order to travel through Rottingdean traffic lights. In the rush hours, this results in congestion leading to over 200 vehicles queuing from the traffic lights back through Peacehaven in the mornings and back towards Roedean School in the evenings.

This is not the case according to the Traffic Model that Brighton Council use. It says all lanes are wide enough, unobstructed and hold about 40 queuing vehicles, barely reaching the Rottingdean Windmill in the evenings. The Traffic Model does not measure queues from a traffic light to the end of the queue. If the traffic queue is more than 10 vehicles the measures quoted by the traffic model read as a simple 10+ in their calculations.

The Traffic Model is flawed and we are asking Brighton Council to look into this and to clarify what they are using as their base traffic model data, from which their results are based.

In reality there is evidence to show that the queue is actually 170-440 cars.

Future Developments

On top of the already committed development at Hoddern Farm, Peacehaven and other committed industrial developments, there are proposed developments planned between Brighton Marina, which currently under construction, through to Peacehaven, meaning over 4000 possible new homes and premises. All of which will impact upon the traffic and air pollution in the local area. Rottingdean and Newhaven centres both have Air Quality Management Areas. It will get worse so please sign our petition: http://www.safe-rottingdean.org.uk/?page_id=1317
