Summary of Project

In 2014, West Sussex County Council identified the A29 Re-alignment scheme as a priority for investment, to support the delivery of strategic growth in Arun District. The A29 is a stretch of road that often causes congestion issues in the Eastergate, Westergate and Barnham areas which leads to difficulty reaching Bognor Regis.


Bognor Regis currently suffers from relatively poor connectivity by road and rail, which in turn has discouraged businesses from investing in the area, and has contributed to poor economic performance relative to the rest of West Sussex and the wider region.


Coast to Capital have invested Local Growth Funding into this project, to help provide access to the site and deliver Phase 1. This project will see a re-alignment of the trunk road, by-passing all three villages, and will enable the local road network to operate more efficiently by reducing congestion, improving the reliability of journey times, whilst providing more capacity for economic growth. In addition, it is expected to help deliver much needed regeneration in the area and Bognor Regis, and allow significant housing developments to come forward.


Key Outputs

  • Improved journey times
  • Reduced congestion
  • Future proofing the area by unlocking areas for housing, business space and jobs
