Silverhill’s newly elected borough councillor Lucian Fernando has taken exception to a decision by East Sussex County Council (ESCC) not to install what he considers to be ‘vital’ safety improvements at Alma Terrance.
Alma Terrace feeds on to the A21, with low visibility making turns onto the main road potentially dangerous. After expressing his concerns to officers at ESCC, Councillor Fernando was told that the suggested improvements – a visibility mirror opposite the junction – was unnecessary because of the lack of a history of collisions at the intersection
Councillor Fernando said: “My constituents are gravely concerned about the safety situation on Alma Terrance. The limited visibility at this intersection is an accident waiting to happen; I’m saddened that ESCC officers do not share this view.
“We should not wait until someone is hurt or, God forbid, killed before we take action at such a precarious patch of road. I urge ESCC officers to reconsider their decision and to install a safety mirror on Alma Terrance”
