Overview

We would like to hear your views about our proposals to improve the A27 East of Lewes.

This is the first of several opportunities you will have to help influence the scheme design.

Why We Are Consulting

The A27 East of Lewes scheme is a package of proposals up to £75 million included in the government’s 2015 – 2020 Road Investment Strategy. It is part of a programme of investment across Sussex that includes schemes in Chichester, Arundel, and Lancing and Worthing.

We have prioritised options that address capacity, safety, sustainability and access issues, and which offer localised benefits.

Following a review of issues and evidence, and in consultation with stakeholders, we are focusing on improving these areas:

  • Selmeston section
  • Drusillas Roundabout
  • Wilmington junction
  • Polegate junction
  • Corridor-wide facilities

A number of different options have been considered in each location and the options presented in our consultation brochure have been assessed as the most suitable.

We are holding a number of consultation events during the consultation period. Do come along and talk to us about the proposals.

Can't make one of our events? You can view our exhibition displays and exhibition panels online.

What Happens Next

Once the consultation is closed, we‘ll combine your feedback with further technical analysis and use this to decide our “preferred route”; the option we’ll recommend to the Planning Inspectorate when we seek planning permission.
