Still time for people to have their say on plans to improve the A27 between Worthing and Lancing
National Highways is reminding people to have their say on its plans to improve the A27 between Worthing and Lancing as its consultation passes halfway point.
The plans to improve journeys for tens of thousands of drivers by upgrading key junctions along the A27 through Worthing and Lancing in West Sussex went on show on 6 February 2023.
The consultation is open to everyone and closes on 19 March. As part of the consultation, National Highways is holding a series of public information events in the local area. Residents and road users can examine the proposals and speak to the project team to find out more and give their feedback. There are still three more events in Sompting (2 March) and Worthing (7 and 15 March).
These proposals primarily focus on four key junctions at Offington Corner (A24), Grove Lodge (A24), Lyons Way and Busticle Lane, as well as local road improvements. They aim to improve journeys by reducing congestion and delays, providing benefits for the local and regional economy.
National Highways project manager Cat van Doorn said:
“It’s been great to speak to so many people and we’re really pleased with the feedback we’ve had so far. There are still three events to go so there is plenty of time for people to find out more about our proposals. The plans are also available online, and people can submit feedback online or by post by 19 March.”
All the plans are available on the scheme webpage: www.nationalhighways.co.uk/a27-worthing-and-lancing-improvements or on the project’s virtual consultation room (available from the project webpage).
