Congestion is more of an issue in the area, why are you not improving this first?

    It is hoped that by improving facilities for walking and cycling, congestion will reduce as people swap using their vehicles for more active modes, particularly for shorter journeys.

    When will we know what the schemes will be in each location?

    Once the initial engagement period has closed on the 5 April 2022, we will use your feedback to help develop detailed designs in each location. These will then be presented at a formal consultation that is planned to take place later this year.

    Are all three locations going to have a scheme, or do we need to pick just one or two?

    We are looking to secure funding for schemes in all three locations.

    Could on-street parking be affected by the proposals?

    We recognise how important it is for residents to be able to park as close as possible to their homes. Therefore, where no alternative off-street parking is available, we will maintain on-street parking where it is possible to do so.

    Will the proposals be designed in accordance with LTN 1/20?

    The detailed designs that we will develop later this year will be designed in accordance with LTN 1/20.

    Are you considering any bus priority measures/improvements to services?

    The range of improvements we are considering primarily focus on improved facilities for walking and cycling. However, where these facilities intersect a bus stop, we will explore ways in which to upgrade them.

    Will the proposals link up to existing walking/cycling infrastructure?

    The improvements along the A259 between Shoreham and the Brighton and Hove border as well as the improvements in Lancing and Sompting have the potential to connect to the existing Nation Cycle Network route 2, which travels along the coast. All three schemes have the potential to connect residential areas to places of employment, leisure and education.
