Mike Croker, Horsham District Councillor for Bramber, Upper Beeding and Woodmancote, has spoken in support of a bridge and has called for a full analysis of all the options before deciding the future of the lethal crossing.
“With increasing motor traffic volume and speed, and increasing use of the Downs Link for leisure and commuting, this crossing deserves a full cost-benefit analysis for both grade-separated and at-grade options, including carbon footprint and environmental impact assessment.”
Mike, who has lived in Bramber for over 40 years, was “pleased and relieved” when the grade-separated crossing of the Downs Link on the A283 just south of the village was built and thinks the Rudgwick crossing needs to be made similarly safe with a bridge.
“This is even more relevant today with the need to facilitate and encourage sustainable travel.”
