Sunday service restored

17 Bus Sunday Service
Diligent readers will recall that Compass Travel withdrew the No. 17 Sunday service on 16th September as the numbers of passengers travelling no longer covered the cost of operation. However, as from 17th September, Sussex Coaches have restored the service following an appeal from Brighton City Council and Brighton Bus Watch. ‘Senior’ and disability bus passes are accepted. Stagecoach continues to operate the route on Monday–Saturday.

Dogleg closure
The dog-leg that connects Poynings to the Saddlescombe Road is to be closed from Wednesday 11th January until .. Tuesday 17th March 2017 — according to the obvious nonsense circulated by Matt Davey, Director of Highways and Transport at WSCC.

Update 14th January: as of 5:00pm this afternoon, the road was open. That does not mean it will be open on Monday morning, though. Proceed cautiously.

Update 16th January: the road remains open, all contractor detritus removed.
