Feasibility Appraisal by East Sussex Highways

Plumpton Lane / Station Road, Plumpton – Speed Reduction

Please find here the Feasibility Study that resulted from the Speed Monitoring exercise last year.

This Feasibility Study Report was commissioned by the PC to assess the feasibility of reducing the speed limit along the 60mph stretches of Plumpton Lane and Station Road and provide an indication of potential cost.  Note in the report that the Police would not support a 40mph limit from the Quarry to the railway crossing. Total cost to implement the speed limit outside this stretch of road would be £27,000. After much discussion PC agreed that whilst there are some inconsiderate residents that drive aggressively and/or dangerously, the speed survey indicated that there is no endemic problem within the Parish and therefore  introducing a speed restriction is not cost justified.
