Eastbourne and the surrounding towns and villages desperately need the main A27 trunk road to be upgraded now to prevent the increasing number of deaths and serious injuries suffered on this stretch of road and to unlock the economic potential of this wide area which will lead to more businesses choosing to locate here, more people choosing this area to work, play and spend their money with our businesses, cafes, restaurants and entertainment attractions.
Eastbourne Borough Councillors of both Conservative and Lib-Dem parties unanimously supported my recent motion which calls on the Government to upgrade the road without further delay for all road users. The campaign is now gaining momentum as we seek to build a wide coalition across the area to show Government how needed this is.
You can support the campaign by signing the e-petition at http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/42147
You can also follow me on Twitter at @CllrWarner or on my Blog at www.cllr-warner.blogspot.co.uk where I shall be publishing regular campaign updates.
During the next week I also intend to have a campaign website up and running where I will be posting updates and hoping to publish supporting comments along the lines of "I support the campaign to #upgradeA27now because". The more of these endorsements we can raise, the more we can keep the campaign in the public eye and stand a chance of getting the magic 100,000 signatures needed to trigger a debate in the House of Commons.
Please support the campaign by signing the petition today and sharing this with everyone you know. Please also e-mail your campaign endorsements to me at firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion in the campaign promotion.
Together we can achieve our goal, thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you in anticipation of your support.
