These documents set out the outcomes of the A27 corridor feasibility study.
The leaflet provides a simple overview of this study and its outcomes. The report provides more detail of our decisions following the study.
The A27 is the only trunk road south of the M25 connecting east and west England. It links urbanised coastal areas with the rest of the network and runs through the South Downs National Park. Currently over 60% of the route is dual carriageway and 4 stretches are single carriageway. The study was carried out to identify opportunities and investment solutions for improving the route. It looks into addressing issues around:
- delays for road users
- separation of communities - notably in Arundel, Worthing and Lancing
- air pollution
- the above average number of accidents
The results of the study informed our ‘Road investment strategy’ (RIS) and particularly the ‘RIS investment plan’.
