Newtown Road Traffic Measures

We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to Close access or egress from Newtown Road at the junction with Fonthill Road for cars or larger vehicles but not cyclists or pedestrians. Newtown Road is being used as a bypass to the more major Roads in the area. This is causing an ever increasing number of accidents at the junction with Fonthill Road, so that the residents are concerned for their safety and others. A turning point could be easily accommodated at the end of the street, and it is not thought likely that this will push road users toward nearby residential streets.

The matter is becoming all the more acute now that there can be anticipated a much greater traffic flow in the area given the developments on Newtown Road itself, in the Hove Bus Station area, and near Sackville Road: this is because Newtown Road gives directly only Hove station, with direct access to London. In short, we are keen to preserve the feel of our neighbourhood (which is and always was residential), while trying to maintain safety in the area and the need for others to use the area as it develops (if only as pedestrians and cyclists).

This ePetition runs from 22/03/2024 to 22/09/2024.
