'The Government`s failure to address adequately the congestion problems in
Hastings underlines three wasted years since their wretched roads review', said shadow transport minister, Bernard Jenkin, yesterday in response to the release of the government`s decision on the Access to Hastings multi-modal study. Mr Jenkin continued:
'We welcome the few improvements to roads and public transport in the Hastings area that the government have chosen to make - although we regret that it has taken them three years since the 1998 roads review to agree to vital improvements to the A21.
'We have long recognised the need for a Hastings bypass but expressed our concerns that the government`s proposal did not meet the necessary environmental criteria. We accept the government`s decision to oppose the scheme as it was presented to them.
'However it is undeniable that there are substantial congestion problems in Hastings that must be addressed immediately. It is a shame that the government could not have come up with a road scheme that was more environmentally-acceptable.'
