A27 Arundel Bypass

Scheme outline

Construction of a bypass to carry the A27 past Arundel. There is already a bypass for the A27, but it is now quite old and runs very close to the town centre. The A27 presently reduces from dual to single carriageway approaching the town from both the east and west, and negotiates several junctions that regularly suffer congestion. The objective of this scheme is to allow the A27 to flow past Arundel as an uninterrupted dual two-lane expressway.

At present there is no route for the bypass and Highways England are consulting on possible options, though they appear to have ruled out an on-line upgrade of the existing road. This means that the scheme will almost certainly involve construction of a bypass on a new line to the south of the town.
