Has anyone else noticed the chaos around Rye of late, caused by East Sussex highways, and the Highways Agency? Roads are being dug up, and then left for days, without a workman in sight and causing long queues all around the town. It is stupid to put a “road closed ahead” sign at Strand Quay roundabout, when the road ahead into the town is open.
This just confuses new drivers coming into the town, following the diversion sign to nowhere. You really couldn’t make up their stupidity, as the road in question, Wish Ward, has no road works on it, its further along at the Deals*. When is someone going to get a grip of these clueless contractors, before the town grinds to a halt?
[*Editor’s note: the Deals, for the uninitiated is the area from the bottom of the Mint, past the Ship, until you reach the junction with South Undercliff.]
