Strong feelings were voiced at a public meeting calling for two new pedestrian crossings in Shoreham.
Campaign organisers Andrew and Tamsin Holmes said they were pleased with the ‘great turn out’ at Swiss Gardens Primary School last night.
Most of the 40-strong audience were residents of Old Shoreham Road, who are concerned about safety on the busy road and want crossings near Freehold Street and at the north end, near the Downs Link path.
Many voiced frustration, saying they had been calling for action for more than 20 years and nothing had been done.
East Worthing and Shoreham MP Tim Loughton agreed an action plan, which received support from the school’s headmaster, Lawrence Caughlin.
