Since coming into the role as Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, I have asked the Department for an update on the work being done on the Hove Level Crossing Removal Project.
As you would no doubt be aware, there was some initial consultation with the community and train commuters which was then taken into consideration by the Department as they commenced the initial concept design.
That work will hopefully be completed by the end of the year. All options are being considered for the best solution, including rail over, rail under, road over and road under.
As soon as the Department has more detail I have asked that they increase consultation with the local community, local businesses, commuters, Council and other key stakeholders.
We know this intersection is a problem when it comes to traffic delays on Brighton Rd and safety on the train corridor so I look forward to working with everyone to find the best solution to Fix Brighton Road - Hove Crossing.
