Hastings and Bexhill Movement and Access Programme
- Capital Investment - East Sussex, More than £2m, LGF1
Construction in progress
Expected completion date
The project will deliver an integrated package of cycling, walking and bus infrastructure, traffic management and public realm improvements, which are aimed at supporting economic growth and planned growth across Bexhill and Hastings.
The Hastings and Bexhill Movement and Access Programme will deliver improvements to junction capacity to reduce local congestion, increase the extent of the cycle network across the two towns to support greater connectivity between key destinations and support the growing appetite for cycling for everyday journeys.
Measures to enhance the attractiveness of the public realm will be delivered in Hastings and Bexhill, which will encourage inward investment, alongside supporting and encouraging more people to walk by creating safer access and permeability. This will be integrated alongside delivering high quality public transport infrastructure and information on key corridors of movement, supporting greater accessibility and journey comfort.
The project will kick start a much wider programme of change in movement and access across the two towns and will set the precedent for future transport infrastructure improvements. This is crucial as both Bexhill and Hastings move towards embracing greater sustainable development and the growing opportunities to maximise the use of technology and communication to enable ‘smart mobility’.
