The A259 Bognor Regis to Littlehampton Corridor enhancement scheme was identified by the County Council as a priority scheme in the Strategic Transport Investment Programme in 2019/20. It is considered by Transport for the South East one of the top ten priority schemes in the South East.
The proposed scheme involves improvement to a series of key junctions along the corridor, including junction capacity, non-motorised and bus users’ infrastructure provision and was subject to a public consultation in summer 2021.
The Department for Transport (DfT) has approved the Strategic Outline Business Case submission and the next stage of the scheme preparation is to prepare and submit an Outline Business Case (OBC) to the DfT.
The Cabinet Member for Highways & Transport will be asked to approve the budget allocation and to agree the arrangements for the preparation and submission of the OBC to the DfT.
