A27 Worthing and Lancing improvements

In line with the Government’s 2015 Road Investment Strategy, Highways England has committed to improve the A27 between Worthing and Lancing. They  have developed a scheme which they say aims to improve traffic flow, journey times, safety and accessibility, boost local economic growth and minimise the impact on the environment.

They have announced the following  public consultation will run from 19 July to 12 September 2017. All responses to the public consultation will be considered by Highways England's project team. The closing date for responses is 11.59pm on 12 September 2017.

Adur and Worthing businesses need an improved A27

The Worthing and Adur Chamber of Commerce actively represent the business community on many issues.

The A27 improvements have long been a focal topic in our area and along with other business leaders we sit on the A27 working group to ensure your business voice is heard. The A27 has become one of the most heavily used and congested trunk roads in England, linking Brighton, Worthing, Chichester, Portsmouth, Southampton, and beyond.

In order to be truly representing our Chamber members it is essential that the business voice is heard in the current consultations on the proposed changes to the A27. We recognise that residents affected by any road improvements must be protected but the overwhelming economic benefits for businesses of all sizes need to be placed firmly at the top of the agenda for the long term future of all.

At this time the plans are still in development as to what can be achieved, this is likely to be limited to improvements on the major junctions, due to the funding available. Similarly, the option of a bypass at this time is unlikely due to financial restraints.

The Chamber will continue to push for the best outcome but in their view improvement in some form is essential.



A27 Survey Results

We recently conducted a survey asking members the question “Does the A27 have any adverse affects on your business?”

85% of members who responded to the survey said their business was adversely affected by the A27.
