The Horsham & Crawley Liberal Democrat group have given their full support to the Bridge the Downs Link campaign. The campaign was set up following the death of Pathushan Sutharsan who was killed at the A281 crossing while taking part in a charity bike ride.
Group Secretary Bob Wheatcroft said: “The Downs Link is a very well used off-road countryside facility valuable to cyclists and walkers alike. Many motorists driving along the A281 are probably unaware that the Downs Link crosses the road. The result is a very dangerous crossing which has had tragic results.”
“We will always be on the side of campaigners for good safe routes for cyclists and walkers. The case for a bridge to separate road users from Downs Link users is simply unanswerable and the campaign has our full support.”
