There is currently a trial of cycling on Seaford promenade, and East Sussex County Council are now consulting to find out what users of it think.
The consultation closes on 17th October 2014, so if you have had the chance to use Seaford promenade during the trial, do take the time to send in some feedback.
The off road cycle route from Newhaven currently finishes in the vicinity of Edinburgh Road at the western end of Seaford. Cycling is currently prohibited on Seaford promenade, which means cyclists have to use the carriageway along Marine Parade between Edinburgh Road and the Martello Tower. The section of route along Marine Parade is not ideal for cyclists owing to the presence of parked vehicles on either side of the road. Allowing cyclists to use the promenade will provide a safer alternative to Marine Parade.
The route has been jointly promoted by our friends at Cycle Seahaven, along with ESCC and Seaford Town Council.
