Liberal Democrats in Sussex today confirmed that they are against any attempts to turn the A27 between Lewes and Polegate into a dual carriageway, despite residents calling for it for decades.
During an interview with BBC Sussex on 16/05/17 the Lib Dem Parliamentary candidate for Lewes made it abundantly clear that she would oppose all efforts to create a dual carriageway on one of the most congested and dangerous stretches of roads in the South East.
Maria Caulfield has been the chair of the A27 Reference Group during her 2 years as a Member of Parliament and has been working hard to gain funding and Government support for a dual carriageway.
Maria Caulfield said “I am shocked and dismayed that the Lib Dems are refusing to listen to residents and would stand by and do nothing about the A27 should they be elected locally.”
“As Chair of the A27 Reference Group I know that many people in Lewes and the wider region want this congested and accident prone road to become a complete dual carriageway through East Sussex, and if elected I will ensure that this happens.”
