West of Horsham - A24 Robin Hood Roundabout Scheme

The West of Horsham highway infrastructure package supports the delivery of the major housing and employment developments to the east and west of the A24.

 

The A24 Robin Hood Roundabout improvement scheme, which forms part of the package, includes alterations to the layouts of the junction with additional approach lanes and traffic signals with improved pedestrian and cycle crossing facilities.  The improvements are being funded through developer contributions secured through Section 106 Agreements.  To construct the junction improvements, there is a need to drawdown additional S106 funding and to tender for and procure a build contractor.

 

Two major improvement schemes in the package, at the Newbridge Roundabout and Farthings Hill Roundabout, have recently been delivered by the County Council.

 

The remaining major scheme in the package is the A24 Great Daux Roundabout; the delivery of improvements to that junction need to be rephased to take account of: the timing of a developer contribution from the North of Horsham Development, a new study of the A24 corridor, and future major development proposals in the Horsham area.
