New traf­fic lights are planned for A24 round­about

West Sussex County Times - - News -

A round­about on the out­skirts of Hor­sham is in line­for­ma­jorim­prove­ments.

West Sus­sex County Coun­cil is look­ing to up­grade the Robin Hood round­about on the A24 to re­duce conges­tion.

The A24 will be widened to in­crease traf­fic ca­pac­ity, a new traf­fic-light sys­tem will help man­age peak flows and there will also be im­prove­ments for pedes­tri­ans and cy­clists.

The scheme will widen the A24 south­bound from two lanes to four lanes, widen the A24 north­bound from two lanes to three lanes, widen the exit from Warn­ham Road on to the round­about, in­tro­duce traf­fic-light con­trol on the A24 ap­proaches to the round­about and on the Warn­ham Road, in­tro­duce a sig­nalised Tou­can cross­ing across the north­bound exit of the A24 (to­wards Great Daux) and im­prove the foot­way and cy­cle­way con­nec­tion from Warn­ham Road to Robin Hood Lane and the pub­lic right of way.

There are likely to be two stages of work, site clear­ance and util­ity di­ver­sion works in the au­tumn/win­ter of 2020/2021 and main con­struc­tion start­ing in the spring of 2021.

The West of Hor­sham high­way and in­fra­struc­ture pack­age has al­ready seen mil­lions spent on im­prove­ments to the New­bridge and Farthings Hill round­abouts.

The re­main­ing ma­jor scheme is for the Great Daux round­about, but the de­liv­ery of th­ese im­prove­ments has been de­layed to a later phase of work. This is to take into ac­count of the tim­ing of fu­ture de­vel­oper con­tri­bu­tions, a new study of the A24 cor­ri­dor and other po­ten­tial ma­jor devel­op­ments coming for­ward.
