Stagecoach has indicated that the opening of a new "bus gate" in Eastbourne will enable them to re-route the two existing services that serve the north and south harbours to be combined, doubling the peak frequencies and meaning improvements to evening and Sunday bus services.
Promises have been received that the long-awaited bus gate will be in place before any construction work starts on the Sovereign Harbour Retail Park. The Bus gate will prevent the roads from becoming a rat run for other motorists by special bollards triggered by equipment on the buses.
