New pedestrian crossing for major Worthing road

£55,000 puffin crossing being built on Tarring Road.


Pedestrians will find crossing the road much safer on a busy Worthing street.

West Sussex Highways is building a new pedestrian crossing in Tarring Road, near the junction with Clifton Road.

The scheme costs £55,000 and includes new dropped kerbs, blistered paving and audio technology for visually impaired pedestrians.

Work starts on Tuesday, February 14 and lasts for four weeks, weather permitting.

Working hours are 7am to 5pm from Monday to Friday.

No work is scheduled at weekends.

Two-way traffic lights will be in operation while construction takes place.

West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, Bob Lanzer, said: “This is a busy part of Worthing used by motorists and pedestrians, many of whom are travelling to or from the train station.

“This crossing will make it safer and easier to cross Tarring Road.

“Disruption is likely while it is being built, so we ask people to factor in extra time on their journeys if they are using Tarring Road.”
