Hi-Way Services Ltd arrived back the other night to continue their task of renewing the town’s yellow lines. This was supposed to have been completed last year but, for a variety of reasons (the best one Rye News heard was ‘the wrong colour yellow’!) has dragged on for many weeks. In fairness, however, it has to be said that the continued parking of cars whose owners disregarded notices advising of the re-lining has been the biggest problem.
On this last occasion, the yellow line vehicle reached East Street at around 10pm on Wednesday night, January 31. It was left there with the engine juddering away for 20 minutes or more whilst the driver went to inspect the situation in the High Street. There was no hope of the south side of the High Street receiving any sort of attention though, with cars parked all along the street, but the double yellow lines on the north side looked pristine this morning.
Hi-Way Services are independent contractors to East Sussex County Council and are based in Kent.
