Will it be money well spent?

It is no surprise to me that the council is being tight-lipped about the new bypass (BHLR).

I’m sure the people of Hasting and Bexhill have the right to know when this bypass will be open.

They also have not disclosed how much it has cost so far, also how much we the rate payers will have to fork out in extra rates to pay for the time it has taken to build.

If this road had been built years ago when it first came on the agenda it would had cost half the price.

The building of 2,000 plus houses in the area will have no affect on Bexhill road, can some body explain to me were this traffic will go?

If for instance every one of these houses has one or two cars you are not telling me that the Bexhill road will be better off.

Rubbish, the traffic will not finish on the Ridge as proposed.

I cannot see the Bexhill people travelling all round the Ridge,the people who planned this bypass must have had a brain storm.

I’m in favour of the bypass because I live in Harley Shute and each day I have queue to get into Hastings or Bexill but only time will tell if this has been money well spent, awaiting with interest.
