Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


As part of West Sussex County Council’s Phase 2 Active Travel Fund (ATF) submission to the Department for Transport (DfT), a proposal was put forward to introduce a contraflow cycle route along Cross Street and subsequently a section of Railway Approach, Worthing, with the aim of linking existing cycling routes and improving provision.


The proposal follows consultation with wider stakeholders including local councillors, bus operators and the Police.  Following Active Travel England’s confirmation of the bid’s success, and stakeholder engagement, a proposed design was developed and sent for formal Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) consultation in January 2023, during which objections were received from nine members of the public.


The local County Councillor John Turley and Sussex Police were consulted and expressed no concerns or objections to the proposal being advertised.



The Cabinet Member for Highways, and Transport, having considered the objections, approves that the Director of Law and Assurance makes the Traffic Regulation Order associated with the scheme as advertised.
