Project information

A27 Arundel bypass

As the main road serving the south coast, the A27 is a crucial route through the south east. However, as it passes through Arundel it operates well over capacity and causes disruption and severe congestion. Highways England is therefore developing options for how the route could be improved.

The A27 to the east of Lewes suffers from congestion due to the narrow carriageway and low capacity at junctions. There are limited overtaking opportunities, meaning that traffic regularly queues behind cyclists and other slow moving vehicles.

This stretch of the A27 between Worthing and Lancing suffers from traffic congestion which causes delays to journey times, road accidents and pollution. There is a significant amount of development planned in the area in the future and, without improvements, traffic congestion, road accidents and pollution are likely to increase. We are developing some short-term proposals to improve this section of the A27. We plan to consult on these in Autumn 2022, with work potentially starting in 2025.
