Council welcomes idea of speed cushions for New Road, Uckfield

Uckfield Town Council is supporting a proposal to install speed cushions to slow traffic in New Road, Ridgewood.

Drawings produced by Linden Homes, developers of the Fernley Park estate, in Eastbourne Road, which were considered by councillors at a meeting last week showed five sets of two cushions spaced along the road, avoiding residents’ drives.

Chairman of the environment and leisure committee Cllr Alan Whittaker said: “Everybody knows New Road is a bit of a problem and I think traffic calming would be a good thing.”

Other committee members agreed.

They also supported the reinstatement of a 30mph speed limit in Lewes Road, Ridgewood. The speed limit had been increased to 40mph but members welcomed the return of a 30mph limit.
