Eastbourne Town Centre Movement & Access Package – Terminus Road/Cornfield Road phase
They provide a main route for traffic through Eastbourne town centre, with access to all traffic on the section of Terminus Road adjacent to the rail station, with the remaining part of the corridor accessible to buses only. This section also includes a number of bus stops and retail frontages, and will complement the Arndale Centre extension by supporting the towns move to providing a stronger image and identity as a major retail centre.
This corridor’s key function is as a retail hub for Eastbourne and for nearby settlements within South Wealden. It also provides connectivity to the seafront and other key destinations in the town centre. The provision for transport interchange is also a key element of this corridor, but it is currently constrained by the existing street layout.
