Progress has been made in finding a resolution to the traffic chaos at McDonald’s in Burgess Hill, according to the leader of the town council.

Pru Moore, leader of Burgess Hill Town Council, said this week that a ‘positive’ meeting had taken place at the fast food restaurant in Civic Way, Queen Elizabeth Avenue.

She told the Middy: “We had a very positive meeting with the district council senior officers at McDonald’s to find a resolution to the road issues.

“Very positive discussions took place and both parties are looking to seek a resolution. Further meetings are to follow.”

The fast food restaurant had a £1.3million makeover last year but since then residents have complained about queues forming on to the nearby roundabout, blocking other drivers.

Middy readers have described the current situation a ‘shambles’, while elected councillors have called for action.
