Plans for the future of the A27 at Chichester will be discussed by members of the county council on June 4.
The county council’s Environment, Communities and Fire Select Committee will preview the decision over a preferred approach to improvements to the road before a final response is submitted to Highways England.
The report details two routes, one improving the current route to the south of the city and the other, a new bypass route to the north.
The report will recommend members support one route as their preferred option, that being the route to the north.
A decision will be taken by West Sussex County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure Bob Lanzer taking into account the discussion at select committee.
A recommendation will then be submitted to Highways England and a final decision will be made by the Secretary of State for Transport as to whether a route will be taken forward as part of the next phase of their road investment scheme (RIS2).
