Calls for improvements will be answered with a road safety scheme, scheduled to start in Worthing town centre next month.
Following requests from the community, improved signage and road markings will be installed and applied over a four-week period at the Lyndhurst Road and Union Place roundabouts and their southbound North Street and High Street approaches.
Subject to factors such as severe weather, the scheme will start on 11 January 2021.
Temporary lane closures will be in place and delays are likely. While every effort will be made to limit disruption, road users are advised to allow extra time for their journeys or use alternative routes, if possible, please. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Shops and businesses will be able to open as normal.
It is estimated the scheme will cost about £45,000. This project is part of the £19million worth of improvement works taking place on West Sussex’s roads and footways between September 2020 and March 2021.
