You reported the programme for roadworks on the A259 to be undertaken in 2018. I would suggest a different order to the three phases of proposed roadworks in and around Rye.
Phase 1 change to Phase 3
Phase 2 remain Phase 2
Phase 3 change to Phase 1
Timing is everything in Rye – a tourist town – and to interrupt with roadworks slap bang in the middle of the tourist season strikes me as at least lacking common sense, verging on stupidity.
Changing the phases would not alter the costs of the works, just the timing. However, having a consultation meeting in May after work has commenced is ridiculous.
