A2300 corridor improvements scheme

Details of the development of the A2300 corridor improvements scheme in Burgess Hill.

(Position at March 2019)

Background

The A2300 links Burgess Hill to the A23/M23 strategic road corridor and is an important route for people commuting to and from Burgess Hill.

In 2011, Mid Sussex District Council’s Transport Study identified that the A2300 would require improvements to increase its capacity to support the planned development in Burgess Hill. West Sussex County Council (WSCC) subsequently commissioned a feasibility study to explore possible improvement options.

Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership (C2C LEP) identified Burgess Hill as a priority in its 2014 Strategic Economic Plan with the objective of generating economic growth through housing and employment.

£17m was allocated by central government through the C2CLEP Local Growth Deal as a contribution to the A2300 corridor improvements scheme, conditional on delivering the business case and value for money. WSCC is the scheme promoter and responsible for delivering the scheme.

Response to public engagement feedback

We have analysed the feedback received from the public engagement exercise, and a report summarising the analysis and our response to the suggestions can be found below.

Next steps

We are progressing the next stage of scheme design development work at present and plan to submit the full business case to central government later this year for consideration and approval. Once approved, it is anticipated that the construction of the scheme will begin early next year.
