The A259 temporary cycle lane extension has finally had its final designs produced and construction dates set, dependant on TRO being accepted.
Brighton & Hove council were awarded Active Travel Fund Tranche 2 money in November 2020, and designated a few schemes to be constructed with the money including a short term temporary scheme along the A259, extending the current temporary cycle lane. The overall idea of this is to reallocate road space away from motor vehicles and to cyclists, this then gives the council a few years to produce detailed & consulate upon plans for a permanent scheme. However this temporary scheme, despite being funded in November 2020 will not start until October 2022 at the earliest, although the initial funding bid said it would be constructed between January and May 2021.
The temporary scheme has seen another round of revisions for the final detailed design, despite there still being major issues with the design along with scope creep making this more of a permanent scheme implemented badly.
The most recent information given by the council is that the scheme should start construction on the 1st October 2022 and be completed by the 1st December 2022. The scheme is currently having its TRO consultation which is open until the 12th August. This scheme does not have an experimental traffic restriction order, instead a standard traffic restriction order so it doesn’t need to be reviewed after 18 months like the initial temporary cycle lane late last year.
