Eastbourne Borough Councillor for Upperton Ward and former Justice of the Peace, Annabelle West has thrown her backing behind the campaign to #upgradeA27now.
Annabelle said "the present road system desperately needs upgrading, the A27 is unable to cope with traffic volume. This is our town's future we are looking at and a potential that could be curtailed effecting Eastbourne's ability to grow and expand causing stagnation of businesses already in Eastbourne who need quick deliveries from outside the area; affect the taxi and coach trade who constantly use this road, as well as new businesses who might want to move to our town and even cause a slowdown in the tourist trade because of bad access. The A27 needs to be upgraded urgently".
