Unstable embankment, A27 Polegate bypass
Unstable embankment, A27 Polegate bypass
The fairly raw earth between the end of the fence and the pylon points to quite recent repairs to the slope, which over this length has the steepest gradient, being pinched by the road below. This is odd, as both roads were laid out at the same time when the Polegate bypass was built. Was the broad bridlepath bordering the lower road a late addition to the plans?
