Friday 15 September 2000 saw the closure to public use of probably the shortest
section of road in the BN15 area. The unmade section of Lambleys Lane going south
from the A27 to West Street was finally closed following years of campaigning
by the Parish Council and local residents, who were concerned at the amount of
traffic using it as a rat-run to avoid the queues for the Downlands traffic lights.
Ironically, due to the fuel crisis, at the time of the closure there was so little
traffic around that it was not being used anyway!
The scene from the A27 following the closure of Lambleys Lane. The sign in the foreground has been replaced, and the gate is now firmly shut to all vehicular traffic (other than the local farmer).
