Further to our last posting we have just seen the report from the A27 WORTHING/LANCING IMPROVEMENTS STAKEHOLDER MEETING that took place in JULY 2015.

A section in it explained that in relation to Worthing/Lancing the plan is to develop “improvements to the capacity of the road and junctions along the stretch of single carriageway in Worthing and narrow lane dual carriageway in Lancing. The extent and scale of the improvements, including the option of full dualling, are to be agreed in consultation with West Sussex County Council and the public.”

What that appears to mean is any work to increase the capacity of the A27 from the eastern boundary of Lancing to the western boundary of Worthing will be on the existing route of the road and no-where else.
So what we now seem to have is one or a combination of the below:

1.- offline tunnels throughout
2.- combinations of tunnel, bypass and dualling
3.- online dualling throughout
4.- selective widening and online junction improvements
5.- travel demand management and public transport.

Is that better?
