Summary of Project

The A259 road runs along the south coast from Chichester to Eastbourne, passing through the city of Brighton and many coastal towns such as Seaford, Newhaven, Worthing and Littlehampton.

The Local Growth Funds will contribute towards an ease in congestion from Worthing to the junction between the A259 and the A284 in Littlehampton. This will also improve journey times and reduce queue lengths at junctions.

The improvements to access in this area will support economic growth and allow the building of new infrastructure that will result in new homes, employment space and jobs.


Key Outputs

  • Provide less congested routes and reduced journey times by improving 2km road infrastructure.
  • Creating 2km of new cycle ways.
  • New infrastructure including black top carriageway, street lighting columns, signs and white lines and 3.5m of shared cycle path.
  • Support the allocation of 1,230 new homes and 95,000sqm of employment space
