The 2019 Public Consultation
A second non-statutory consultation on the Arundel A27 improvements is being carried out in 'late summer' this year.
This is because the Preferred Route decision that had been reached for Option 5A, although as yet unchanged by Highways England, was vitiated by the poor quality of the 2017 consultation.
Highways England's opening message to stakeholders about this consultation can be read here.It appears from ecologists' briefing maps of search area, that the additional options being 'brought back' will probably include versions of 4A and 5B.We oppose major new offline road building options. Their financial and environmental cost are unacceptable in an era of climate change and of straitened public social and economic budgets.We support a lower impact, 40mph single carriageway version of Option 1. This would improve flow and resolve the tailbacks, without costing the earth.
