West Sussex County Council, Adur District Council and Worthing Borough Council signed the Adur and Worthing Growth Deal in March 2017. The Growth Deal established an ambitious five-year partnership growth programme focusing on regeneration in the area. As part of the Worthing Growth Programme, up to £12 million is being invested into the Worthing Public Realm Improvements (WPRI) project which aims to improve the quality of environment and connections between the train station, the seafront and the key redevelopment sites (known as public realm).

Key aims of WPRI include:

  • Creation of quality landscapes at destination and arrival points
  • Great gateways with clear routes and desirable spaces
  • Improvements to the safety of the public realm as inclusive community spaces
  • Promotion of sustainable travel within healthy and attractive environments
  • Engagement with key stakeholders to build upon strong local support.

Railway Approach is the second priority phase within the WPRI programme, with grant contribution secured from the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership. Railway Approach is an integral project as it will create a station gateway and sustainable transport interchange, linking a new cycleway and cycle hub, and supporting town centre growth and economy. In synergy with the works on Railway Approach, works to promote walking and cycling on Cross Street will also be undertaken. While the Railway Approach scheme derives from the Worthing Growth Programme, the Cross Street improvements are funded by the Active Travel programme. To avoid additional disruption and in order to streamline the two projects, these schemes will be delivered together.

All of the artistic impressions below show how the scheme will look in 2035, once the trees and planting have matured.

What is being delivered on Railway Approach?

This scheme will upgrade the front of Worthing Railway Station and Railway Approach. This includes accessibility enhancements, greening with trees and planting, the promotion of walking and cycling through improved pedestrian access and new bicycle racks, and improved safety through better lighting and new CCTV.

What is being delivered on Cross Street?

The scheme will provide a contra-flow cycle lane linking Railway Approach to Cross Street which will serve cyclists travelling westbound. Additionally, the scheme will implement a raised crossing and raised table to prioritise pedestrian priority at the junction with Railway Approach, as illustrated below.
