A27 across Coastal West Sussex

The A27 is the main arterial route across Coastal West Sussex and is the most important transport connection between Portsmouth and Brighton.

However, the road is plagued by numerous bottlenecks at Chichester, Arundel, Worthing and Lancing where congestion and extensive queuing occur daily at most junctions along the bypass.

Traffic volumes and congestion on the bypass have a significant impact on business which is why the Coastal West Sussex Partnership will continue to use its collective voice to lobby for investment that support solutions to address the bottlenecks and so improve journey times and reliability across the network.

In September 2016, a consultation on the options for the A27 at Chichester was delivered by Highways England and the response to that consultation by the CWS Partnership Board can be found here
