Update on the Lyminster By-Pass

Here is the update from the County Council on the Lyminster By-Pass

"The technical feasibility study, commissioned by the County Council on behalf of Arun District Council, investigated and reported on initial options for the northern section of the bypass from the North of Littlehampton development to the existing A284 north of Lyminster.  The study did not identify any prohibitive or insurmountable constraints on delivery at this early stage.  Further work will be required before the scheme can be delivered including consideration of remedial measures on the existing A284 through Lyminster and the Wick level crossing.  The cost of the northern section of the bypass is £6.3m - including costs for construction, land, design and risk - and a substantial financial contribution is expected from the North of Littlehampton development to assist with delivery.  However, there remains a funding gap of approx £2.3m, officers from the County Council and Arun District Council are currently investigating gap funding opportunities and at present, there is no timetable for delivery of the bypass." 

I will keep you updated, the Lyminster Bypass will be discussed at the presentation of the above at the upcoming Joint Downland Committee on the 22nd of October at the White Swan Hotel, Chichester Road, Arundel.  The public can come and ask questions.
