Louise, who works at Roots Research in Grand Parade, said there were no signs to warn pedestrians about a new alternative lane layout, and the pedestrian crossing machine was not working.
She said: “I was leaving work to get some lunch and was crossing the road where I usually do.
“Normally there are two lanes going in the same direction towards London Road, and so I didn’t look that way because there’s normally no traffic coming from that direction.
“I heard a man shouting something and then I was hit, side on.”
Louise, who lives in Helena Close, Portslade, said she put her arm down to steady herself and her wrist was broken in two places.
She said: “Luckily I didn’t hit my head.
“The bus driver came out and I was just sat there in shock, feeling sick.
“I’m annoyed at myself for not looking, but if there were working lights or a ‘look both ways’ sign, this would not have happened.
“We walk across that road every day to get lunch and are always saying how ridiculous it is.
“It was an accident waiting to happen.”...but you'd definitely, positively have seen the signs, if they'd been there?
