The Ups And Downs Of Sea Road

posted by David Dennis on 25 Aug 2010 at 8:30 pm

Has anyone wondered what is happening under Sea Road? The ground water starts at the top of the hill and by the time it gets past the lower church and doctor's surgery is has undermined the road. There is a massive camber on both sides and also subsidence. So that is DOWN.

Now for UP. Why is it that we put UP with speeding - in excess of 60 miles per hour sometimes, when in other parts of Rother they have traffic calming? We have already had a BMW hit a landrover and upturn it. There is a kind of inevitability about the death of an elderly person in lower Sea Road who will be crushed by a fast moving car or van any time now.

Perhaps if the ground water causes sufficient subsidence then the road will collapse, making Sea Road a cul-de-sac!

I fully agree with David Dennis, there should be speed restrictions at the junction of Sea road & St Leonards road or even lights , I have the book shop on the corner & in the three years I have been here I have seen 5 or 6 crashes due to drivers going too fast, so far there have been no serious injury , but unless speed controls are put in place it's just a matter of time
