Whether you walk, bus, cycle or drive through the Old Steine area, Brighton and Hove City Council are seeking views on how transport routes can be improved.
The council are looking make the Valley Gardens safer, cleaner and more attractive by improving transport and travel, improving air quality, and creating new public spaces. You might have noticed the construction work already underway on the first two phases, from St Peter’s Church to Edward Street.
A design option for the third phase, covering the area around the Old Steine down to the Palace Pier roundabout, is now being developed. Feedback from a previous consultation in the summer has been used to inform a redesign of the area, and residents are invited to submit views on the proposals.
Improvements to the Old Steine to Palace Pier area are planned because there have been 154 collisions there in five years; it is often difficult for pedestrians to cross roads and many walking routes are indirect; there is no cycle route to and from the seafront and the existing layout can be confusing for car, van drivers and motorcyclists.
You can Take part in the consultation using the online consultation portal which is open until 25 November 2018.
