National Highways has confirmed details of the supplementary consultation into proposals for the A27 Arundel bypass and is encouraging everyone interested to have their say on updated information.
The four-week consultation (16 November to 16 December 2022) will give people the opportunity to have their say on the latest changes to the project that have been made following a detailed analysis of over 4,000responses received during the last consultation held earlier this year, reports the Sussex Express.
The four key areas which have been refined are; changes to reduce traffic impacts in and around Walberton; mitigating the scheme’s effects on bats, near Tye Lane; updated proposals in relation to the Avisford Park Golf Club and potential changes at the Crossbush Junction.
Andrew Jackson, National Highways project lead, said: “Over the course of 2022 we have made changes to the scheme design – including reducing the impact of additional traffic through Walberton, and we’d now like to present those additional changes and gather feedback on them. During this consultation we will be presenting our revised design and seeking your feedback on the changes put forward. Once we have given everyone a chance to comment on the new proposals, we plan to submit ourDCO application in Spring 2023.”
