Upgrade of the current A27 Chichester Bypass, which suffers from chronic congestion and unreliable journey times. The existing road has five roundabouts and one signalised junction, and is one of the major barriers to the provision of a free-flowing route along the south coast.
Highways England have refined the possible options to three proposals, and a preferred scheme will then be selected from these three as part of a public consultation in spring 2016.
Options being considered at the outset included junction improvements on the existing bypass, including some grade separation, and a new bypass to the north of the city. It's not yet clear which three options are going to be put forward for consultation.
|9 May 2016||The consultation has been delayed until Summer 2016 as Highways England are apparently having problems identifying and finalising their options.|
|15 July 2016||Highways England published the consultation on 14 July detailing the five options they are looking at. Further information is available on the Highways England website: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/a27-chichester-bypass-improvement-scheme|
