The Highways England A27 Arundel Bypass public consultation has now started, and this is your chance to have your say.
Highways England are consulting on options to improve the A27 by replacing the existing single carriageway road with a new dual carriageway, linking together the two existing sections on either side of the town.
At the Town Hall you will find information boards, the brochure and questionnaire (as long as supplies allow). There will also be Highways England manned presentation days as set out in this letter to all Arundel residents Letter to residents [pdf] 1MB as well as dates for other venues during the consultation period.
In addition there will be a Parish Meeting at St Nicholas Church on Monday 25 September from 7 to 9.30pm at which residents will have a chance to have their say locally. The format for this meeting will be a panel consisting of Nick Herbert, MP speaking for a Bypass, someone yet to be confirmed speaking against a Bypass, representatives from Highways England to provide technical support chaired by John Godfrey.
The consultation ends at midnight on 16 October, and we at the Town Council encourage as many residents as possible to take part and make your views known either on the paper questionnaire or online.
The extensive questionnaire asks for feedback on factors such as journey times, safety, environmental impacts etc as well as the options themselves. There is plenty of opportunities for you to give your thoughts on every aspect of the consultation.
Please see the Highways England website for full details, to download the brochure and take part in the consultation.
