West Sussex County Council is asking for your views on proposals for future transport improvements between Durrington and Goring-by-Sea, Worthing.

Release date: 11 March 2024

This area is already a busy location with residents travelling to schools, work and to access local services and recreation facilities. To support these journeys, the improvements being considered include the creation of improved routes and crossings for pedestrians and cyclists to make travelling actively an easier, safer and more appealing option.  

Improvements to facilities at some bus stops and junction improvements to reduce traffic congestion at the A2032/Durrington Lane/The Boulevard junction are also included in the proposals.  

These improvements would help journeys to locations such as Durrington High School, Durrington-on-Sea railway station, Worthing Leisure Centre, Goring seafront as well as shopping, employment and development areas.

Cllr Joy Dennis, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport at West Sussex County Council, said: “Following initial public engagement in 2023, which indicated that there is general support for transport improvements in this area, design proposals are now being put forward and I encourage all residents to take a look and share your feedback.

“These proposals are part of the county council’s transport strategy for Worthing, which also includes improving the A27, promoting better public transport, and providing more electric vehicle charging points.”

Full details of the proposals can be found on the consultation page and we are encouraging residents, businesses and other users to tell us what they think by completing the online survey. All feedback will be considered to help develop the final designs.

Drop-in events have also been arranged to give you the chance to view our ideas in person and speak to members of the project team.

These will be held at:

  • Worthing Leisure Centre, Shaftesbury Avenue, Worthing, BN12 4ET, Thursday 21 March, 2pm to 6pm
  • Durrington High School, The Boulevard, Worthing, BN13 1JX, Monday 25 March, 4pm to 8pm.

The schemes are at an early stage of development and likely to depend on securing government grant funding, therefore it is expected to be several years before any construction could commence.

The consultation is open until 11:55pm on Tuesday, 30 April, 2024 and full details of the proposals can be found on our consultation page Durrington to Goring Transport Improvements | Your Voice West Sussex.
