The impact on Arundel's landscape from a long stretch of major new road, if there is to be a fully offline bypass, would be great. Some consider Option 3 a sacrifice worth making for the times saved. Some prefer a lower-impact short bypass, on a more moderate scale and speed but bypassing most of the pinch points to improve flow, as advocated by Arundel A27 Forum, on the Option 1 alignment.
