East Sussex County Council and cycling

An off-road cycle lane alongside a hazardous 'A' road? Not in East Sussex.

A spokesman for East Sussex County Council said, "We are keen to encourage cycling and work with others to explore opportunities to do so. However, we are focusing our efforts on the way people travel to work or to school as we believe short journeys of this type have the greatest potential for people to cycle.

"To this end, we are continuing to maintain and promote existing recreational routes rather than building new ones."
