Councillor Richard Stogdon told the Town Council a meeting had been held with the Assistant Director for Transport at East Sussex County Council (ESCC). Jeremy Woolgar of Crowborough Chamber of Commerce also attended.
It was reported that ESCC, as the Highways Authority, had costed possible traffic alleviation schemes for the town – specifically to provide alternative routes for HGV lorries from the A26 to the Millbrook Industrial Estate. To widen Palegate Lane, to make it suitable to take lorries, would costs between £6 and 9 million. To lower the road under the railway bridge at the station, and underpin the bridge, would cost in the region of £1million. Discussions will now take place with Network Rail about the feasibilty of altering the bridge and possible funding of the scheme.
