|Pink Blue Route still the preferred route since 1993.|
There is a lot of talk about the Pink Blue route for the new bypass, we are assuming that this will be one of the route options that will be announced by Highways England in this Summer. I know from conversations with residents that some people are not aware of the exact route and the history. So please see the the map which comes from the Department of Transport and is still the preferred route. It is featured on most maps and if you have purchased property in the last 24 years it would have come up on local searches.
The route was adopted in 1993. After a long period of consultation and interaction between the Government of the day, Department of Transport, Arundel Town Council, Arun District and West Sussex County Council. If you look at the map the existing A27 is closer to most houses in Arundel than the Pink Blue route,so bearing in mind measures to mitigate noise, I believe that traffic noise will actually reduce for most residents.
There is a new Pro Bypass group been set up and you can sign up to show your support and receive emails at OneArundel.co.uk the link is https://www.onearundel.co.uk/joinour-mailing-list
