Whitehawk Pedestrian Crossing Improvements

Closed 9 Sep 2023

Opened 21 Aug 2023


As part of the Council’s Pedestrian Crossing Priority Programme, we are planning to implement improvements at the Whitehawk mini-roundabout (junction of Whitehawk Road, Arundel Road, Bristol Gardens and Roedean Road). Proposed changes are:

  • Closure of eastern end of Bristol Gardens to motor vehicles to prevent rat running and speeding. This will remain open to pedestrians and cyclists and provide more space for pedestrians.
  • Removal of roundabout and introduction of raised junction to encourage vehicles to slow down on approach.
  • Pavement widening. The pavement will be extended around the junction to provide additional space for pedestrians.
  • New Zebra crossing on Roedean Road. This will give pedestrians extra priority and provide a safer crossing route to The Brighton Waldorf School.

Why your views matter

Before we make these changes to the junction we want to make sure we consider any particular issues or concerns faced by local residents and businesses.

By giving us your views at this stage you can tell us about any local issues you face when using this junction, which we can consider for the final design.

What happens next

Once the survey closes, we will review the results and produce a final design. We will then advertise these changes via a Traffic Regulation Order for a minimum of 21 days. Pending the outcome of the Traffic Regulation Order, the council will begin construction works in early 2024. We will provide an update on the final design and construction works in due course.
