Worthing Downlanders Remaining Events 2014
(Details to follow and more events may be added at a later date)

A Short Walk to view the route of a possible A27 'bypass' option.


Saturday November 1st 2014 1.45pm
Meet at the Hill Barn Lane car park, Worthing.
(north end of the Recreation Ground)

You may be aware or not that a study has been going on to select options to deal with traffic along the A27 from Chichester to the north of Eastbourne.
Four options for our Worthing section have been selected for further consideration and the winner will most likely be chosen before the Chancellor makes his autumn statement (he has to find the money for all this of course).
If the Department for Transport do decide to look further at a downland route Option, we think the most likely route will be one similar to what the 1995 Public Inquiry agreed, at least as far as Church Lane Sompting. Namely a 4 lane dual carriageway starting at Cote St in the West, on a flyover at Offington roundabout, through the golf course to the top of Hill Barn lane where it would enter a deep cutting before ploughing across downland north of Lyons farm and Lambleys lane, rejoining the A27 just west of St Marys church.

As such Worthing Downlanders would like to make people aware of the possibility of the destruction of a part of our treasured local downlands.
Please join us for a walk around the area - and enjoy the fresh air while you can!
