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,
(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 Mary’s
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!
