Letter: Billingshurst road swamped with heavies

Letter: Billingshurst road swamped with heavies

I believe that it was short-sighted to route the Billingshurst bypass west of the village as very little heavy commercial traffic uses this road whereas the A272 is swamped with heavies with a particular narrow entrance/exit from the High Street.
