Why we need this scheme
The Arundel section of the A27 lacks road and junction capacity. As a result it suffers from congestion, particularly junctions at Crossbush, The Causeway and Ford Road. Planned growth along the wider A27 corridor is likely to worsen the problem and at present there’s no proposal for public transport provision that would have a positive impact on traffic levels. This scheme aims to reduce congestion through Arundel by means of a new dual carriageway bypass. The bypass would link together the two existing dual carriageway sections of the A27 either side of Arundel. We are also assessing alternative options including online junction improvements. These proposals are subject to consultation with the National Parks Authority, Local Government and the public.
The objectives for the scheme are to:
• improve capacity of the A27 whilst supporting local planning authorities to manage the impact of planned growth
• reduce congestion, reduce travel time and improve journey time reliability along the A27
• improve the safety of travellers along the A27 and consequently the wider local road network
• improve accessibility for all users to local services and facilities
• deliver a scheme that minimises environmental impact and seeks to protect and enhance the quality of the surrounding environment through its high quality design
• respect the South Downs National Park and its special qualities in our decision-making
