East Sussex County Council promotes car dependency

A contract has been awarded for the design and construction of a multimillion-pound road linking two seaside towns in East Sussex. Hochtief and Vinchi will design and build the 5.6km single-carriageway Bexhill to Hastings Link Road.

East Sussex County Council said the scheme will link the outskirts of Bexhill and Hastings, providing access to areas that have been identified for regeneration, and ease congestion and boost air quality.

This is the very same council which refuses to spend money on cycling facilities.
