A27 schemes

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.

The scheme is currently under review. The Worthing and Lancing section of the A27 lacks road and junction capacity. As a result it suffers from congestion, particularly at Grove Lodge, Durrington Cemetery and Lyons Way.
