  1. Trying to gain support from local Chichester campaign groups – those to the south of Chichester are typically prisoners due increasingly to the realignment of the A27 to favour through traffic.
    In sharing this Arundel Meeting Link …
    “Highways England (now National Highways) have a master plan for a South of London Outer Orbital … AKA the A/M27 … current manifestations include the many years of work on the M27 8 lane smart motorway and the Arundel Grey Route Bypass (many current projects through Lewes eastwards. One cited driver is the planned expansion of Gatwick Airport with Sat Nav directing traffic away from the gridlocked M25.

    We cannot go on building new roads – it induces more traffic, and the environmental destruction and £costs are too high. There are other options … Please support:”

    1. Dear Phillip, the South Downs Network agree that the blinkered thinking of a ‘roads only’ transport strategy is not going to cut congestion, cut pollution and cut emissions. Come to the SCATE Autumn Gathering in Arundel this Saturday to find out more
