First steps to gauge opinion on five walking and cycling improvement proposals

Initial feedback is being sought on five new proposals as part of West Sussex County Council’s aim to improve walking and cycling facilities across the county.

The proposals are at:

  • The B2144, Oving Road, Chichester, between A27/Oving Road West and Needlemakers
  • Three routes in Lancing and Sompting: the Red RouteA27/Busticle Lane in the north to A259/Western Road in the south; Orange Route: A27/Grinstead Lane in the north to A259/South Street in the south, and the Green Route: Lambleys Lane/Upper Brighton Road in the west to A2025 Grinstead Lane/Crabtree Lane in the east
  • The A259 Shoreham to Brighton, from A259 / East Street in the west to the county border in the east.

These potential locations have been identified in the County Council’s Strategic Transport Investment Programme (STIP), which develops strategic (i.e. larger than local) transport schemes that are needed to support sustainable economic growth in the county.

Information about each proposal can be found on our engagement web page, where people can provide their feedback until 5 April 2022.

The comments will help us to identify key constraints, issues and opportunities that will be used to help shape the proposals before they are presented at the phase two, formal consultation later this year.

As well as helping to improve the health, wellbeing and safety of West Sussex residents, it is hoped that improving facilities for walkers and cyclists will support the local economy, reduce congestion and carbon emissions.
