A284 Lyminster-Bypass

THEME: Transport

AREA: West Sussex

A new North South road will link Littlehampton to the A27 by-passing Lyminster and Wick.

Delivery Body: West Sussex County Council

Theme: Transport

Coast to Capital LGF Allocation: £3m

Match Funding Contribution: £5.65m

Project Status: Delivering


Summary of Project

The A284 currently connects the A27 to Littlehampton through Lyminster and Wick. The current lack of a bypass creates congestion, long journey times and an increase in air pollution for local residents.

Local Growth Fund contribution, along with developer funding, will create the northern section of the bypass. The completed bypass will more efficiently connect the A27 with Littlehampton and therefore encourage growth in the area. Journey time will be reduced and the access will create an opportunity to improve the economic growth in the area by creating employment space, jobs and new homes.

This project can also facilitate the closure of the existing level crossing gate at Wick, which will improve safety and reduce Network Rail’s maintenance commitment.


Key Outputs

  • 1.8km Bypass to be built to improve access to Littlehampton area.
  • New infrastructure including Black top carriageways, cyclist and pedestrian facilities, street lighting columns, signs and white lines.
  • 630 Homes can be built.
  • 13,000sqm Employment space which can lead to 700 jobs in the area.
  • 1km Cycle ways developed to encourage sustainable transport.
