Why we need this scheme

The Worthing and Lancing section of the A27 lacks road and junction capacity. As a result it suffers from congestion, particularly at Grove Lodge, Durrington Cemetery and Lyons Way. Planned growth along the wider A27 corridor is likely to worsen the problem. The Worthing and Lancing improvement scheme aims to improve the capacity of the road and junctions along the stretch of single carriageway in Worthing and the narrow dual carriageway in Lancing. The extent and scale of the improvements, including the option of fully dualling, are to be determined.

Aims

The objectives for the scheme are to:
  • reduce congestion on the Worthing-Lancing section of the A27
  • manage the impact of planned growth and support the wider economy
  • minimise impacts on and where possible seek opportunities for enhancing the environment
  • provide safer roads and more reliable journeys by reducing travel delays
  • improve accessibility for all users
