Media statement re today’s Highways England A27 Arundel Bypass preferred route announcement


Statement date: 15 October 2020

Paul Marshall, Leader of West Sussex County Council, has commented on today’s Highways England announcement of their preferred route for the A27 Arundel Bypass.

Paul Marshall, Leader of West Sussex County Council, said: “We welcome the much-needed investment in our road infrastructure in West Sussex.  We have said for many years that improvements are vital on the A27 at Chichester, Arundel, Worthing and Lancing to reduce congestion and ensure our residents and businesses can move around our county reliably and safely.

“The County Council’s preferred scheme for Arundel was along a different route (the magenta route). However, we will carefully examine the rationale for this decision and look forward to receiving further detail and information about the much-needed mitigation package Highways England will put in place to, as much as possible, limit impacts on residents and the environment.

“I absolutely understand the concerns of the people of Tortington, Binsted and Walberton and the surrounding area and I want to reassure them that I will continue to lobby Government to make sure they get the support they need.”
