Traffic calming on Arundel Terrace
Traffic along the Terrace has greatly increased since motorists and lorry drivers have discovered the Terrace provides an opportunity for them to avoid the pedestrian traffic lights on the A259 directly opposite Arundel Terrace.

"Thank you for raising your concerns about Arundel Terrace.
As I have mentioned previously the Council receives a large number of requests for traffic calming across the City and the current demand exceeds the available resources. This means that requests have to be prioritised where there is an existing casualty history within the last three years. We have checked the collision database and there has been one casualty on Arundel Terrace in the last 3 years. Whilst no injury is ever acceptable on the highway, we must prioritise the best we can with the funding available.
Road safety concerns very seriously and the Council works with the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership and other bodies and Authorities to help improve road safety across the whole Sussex region. The Police are important partners and work with the Council and the community to help address concerns about speeding via its SpeedWatch initiative. Information about that is available online.
We have also purchased a series of mobile vehicle activated
signs that measure the signs are moved around the City to help
modify driver behaviour and to help us gather data on speed and
volumes of vehicles on sites where rat running has been raised as a
concern. In light of the concerns you have raised we will add
Arundel Terrace to the list of sites to be considered as part of
this programme speed of vehicles and flash up warnings when drivers
are exceeding the limit".
