Lyminster Bypass

A284 Junction Option one 
Last night at the Joint Downland meeting there were several questions from worried Lyminster residents regarding the proposed Lyminster By Pass. I had attended a seminar in May regarding the By-pass,  this will start just south of the Crossbush interchange along the A284 and runs directly into the link road which cuts through the new North Littlehampton development and goes over the Railway via a new bridge which goes to the centre of Littlehampton coming out by the Police Station. 

 The link road has already been started from the Littlehampton end.  Monies have been identified for the section north of the new housing and plans have been drawn up which you can see below. 

The proposed route
Last night at the meeting there were concerns that this bypass would increase movements through the old village, I think this is a misunderstanding as the traffic will be routed away from the old village, and if anything it will make Lyminster  once again a rural idyll.  But option two would  go south of  some of the existing houses which would cause a split.   I am happy to make representations on behalf of the village and come along with Karl Roberts (Asst Director & Head of Planning) to any residents meetings that are arranged.
