A284 Lyminster bypass (north) - funding allocation and award of construction contract

The A284 Lyminster Bypass is an important north-south link between the A27 at Crossbush and Littlehampton and the County Council is delivering the northern section. Jackson’s Civil Engineering was awarded the design and build contract and the scheme was granted planning permission on 26 March 2019.

 

The Compulsory Purchase Order was confirmed by the Secretary of State on 16 September 2021 following a Public Inquiry.

 

The Department for Transport (DfT) has previously approved the Outline Business Case and has been asked to contribute additional funding on review and approval of the Full Business Case.

 

As the final stage of the scheme, subject to the DfT approving the funding, the Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport will be asked to confirm the funding allocation and award the construction contract for the A284 Lyminster bypass (north).
