The proposed A29 Realignment Scheme will deliver a 4.34km road to the east of Eastergate, Westergate and Woodgate villages. The new road alignment will provide the highway infrastructure needed to support the planned strategic development of the area by providing access to land for residential and commercial development. The new road will also alleviate traffic congestion along the existing A29, notably at the Woodgate level crossing which causes delays on to a key access route into Bognor Regis.
The Transport Business Case has been approved by the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership (C2CLEP) and the County Council has entered into a Funding Agreement with the C2CLEP, which will be delivered in at least two phases. This decision relates to phase one between the A29, Fontwell Avenue and the B2233, Barnham Road.
In February 2019, the Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure delegated authority to the Director of Highways and Transport to tender, procure and award the services of design and build and contract administration from the approved list of contractors on the Highways and Transport Frameworks.
The Director of Highways, Transport and Planning has:
1. Entered into a Funding Agreement with Coast to Capital LEP for Phase 1 of the scheme; and
2. Awarded the design and build contract for phase 1 of the scheme to Jackson Civil Engineering Group Ltd
