The £29.5million Angmering and Littlehampton road scheme on the A259 is officially open

The £29.5million Angmering and Littlehampton road scheme on the A259 was officially opened on Thursday, 13 July.   This from the WSCC press release - 

Two new sections of dual carriageway, totalling 2km in length, have been built and will: • reduce journey times • cut traffic congestion – saving around 670 tons of CO2 per year • support existing and future housing and commercial developments in Arun  • enable more active travel in the area with 2km of new pathways and cycleways.  Cllr Joy Dennis, the county council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, officially opened the improvements by cutting a ribbon on the cycle route. Cllr Dennis said: “This multi-million-pound improvement scheme provides an essential key to unlock many long-term benefits in the area for residents, visitors and local businesses. People can now travel more freely through this important area of the county, north of Littlehampton. This project aligns with one of the key aims in West Sussex County Council’s “Our Council Plan” , which is to help create a sustainable and prosperous economy.  The project was jointly funded by Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership, the county council and through private developer contributions.
