Four large safety signs are going up on the A264 to make motorists more aware of a pedestrian crossing.

West Sussex Highways will install ‘Be Aware – Pedestrian Crossing’ signs near the A264 Horsham bypass crossing point, which links the Northlands Road footway to Old Holbrook.

At the same time a pedestrian guardrail will be put in on the south side of the westbound carriageway.

Work starts on Wednesday, January 18 and is expected to take six days to complete.

It will be carried out on weekdays between 9.30am and 3pm to minimise disruption.

No work is being done at the weekend.

Lane closures will be in operation to protect the workforce and the public.

West Sussex County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, Bob Lanzer, said: “These signs will be in the central reservation.

“It will make motorists aware of this crossing point, which is used by cyclists and pedestrians to get to and from Horsham.

“If motorists are more aware of the crossing it will make it safer for people to cross the A264.”

The scheme costs £18,000.
