Caroline Wood, Director for the Coastal West Sussex Partnership said: “We’re really pleased that the consultation process has opened, after work was instructed to stop on the Chichester Bypass in March by the Secretary of State. The A27 is the most important transport connection between Portsmouth and Brighton and needs to work effectively for the benefit of both the local, regional and national economy.”
“We have been frustrated and disappointed that the decision was taken to stop work earlier this year. We hope that this gives our local businesses and residents the opportunity to have their say into improving the road infrastructure in this area.”
