Background

WSCC is currently looking to develop a high quality scheme for the Shoreham area that could bring many benefits to the local area such as improved air quality, increased safety and better opportunities for walking and cycling. A scheme could also provide a safer route linking Shoreham and Lancing, and help school pupils travel to and from The Shoreham Academy and the Sir Robert Woodard Academy.

Upper Shoreham Road, Middle Road and Eastern Avenue are being considered for walking and cycling improvements as part of the Government’s Active Travel Fund (ATF). Progressing with these improvements is subject to full consultation with all stakeholders so that they can be submitted to the Department for Transport in a bid for funding later this year.

Initial thoughts from Adur and Worthing Council’s Local Walking and Cycling Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) show that any improvements should support journeys to and from school, commuting, shopping and other everyday trips. The types of potential improvements we could make include:

  • Upper Shoreham Road segregated cycle ways
  • Changes to the way vehicles travel through Eastern Avenue. For example, discouraging rat-running traffic to make it a more attractive route for pedestrians and cyclists and changing road layout to create space for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Changes to the way vehicles travel through Middle Road. For example, discouraging rat-running traffic to make it a more attractive route for pedestrians and cyclists and changing road layout to create space for pedestrians and cyclists
  • A permanent signalised crossing improvement on the A283 near its junction with the Upper Shoreham Road to connect the Downs Link with St Nicholas Lane

This engagement follows on from community comments already received from recent surveys. We are hoping to understand people’s opinions on what type of high quality scheme they may wish to see in their local area. We are very mindful that this is a residential area so would want to construct a scheme that enhances the local community and crucially takes into account key issues such as parking, deliveries access to properties and public transport.



Have your say

Initial consultation is now open for Shoreham-by-Sea.

We are interested in understanding your views on:

  • Our initial plans for improvement
  • How important you think these improvements are for the area
  • If these improvements would encourage you to walk or cycle more

You can give your feedback on this initial pre-consultation engagement by:

  • Adding comments directly on the interactive map below and;
  • Completing the online consultation questionnaire.

We would welcome your views on both the interactive map and the online questionnaire as your feedback will be vital in helping to shape how these early plans develop, ahead of public consultation later in the year.
