A: This will provide a safe access and egress from the new development onto the A259 along with new bus stops and a safe pedestrian crossing of the A259


Q: Will any road have to be closed during the works?

A: There will be a requirement to close the A259 out of Peak hours for certain elements of these works. We will keep such occurrences to a minimum and will advise of dates via advanced notice signs and also on the project webpage and will involve night time working.


Q: When will the work start?

A: Works are due to commence on the 12th of September 2022


Q: When will the work finish?

A: The works are programmed to finish in Summer 2023


Q: Can works be carried out at evenings or overnight?

A: Some elements of the work will have to be carried out during off peak hours, but the majority will be carried out during normal working hours. Our proposals will minimise the impact on existing traffic flows as much as possible throughout the works. Out of hours work will be advised via the project Webpage –


Q: How much will it cost and who is responsible for costs?

A: The works are being delivered and paid for by the developer of the site and costs are commercially sensitive.


Q: What disruption can motorists or bus passengers expect?

A: There will be an element of disruption during normal working hours. The majority of the works are on the eastbound carriageway and will be carried out under narrow lanes, whereby 2-running lanes of traffic will be maintained for the majority of the works, albeit under a reduced speed limit of 50mph. There will be a need for off-peak lane closures on both eastbound and Westbound carriageways bit these will be kept to a minimum. These are shown on the traffic management drawings on the project webpage –


Q: Will temporary bus stops be put in place during the work?

A: This is not relevant as no existing bus stops are impacted by the works


Q: Will any diversion routes for traffic have to be put in place?

A: Diversion routes will be in place when road closures are required. These will be fully signed and also available on the project website page.-


Q: Are there any other considerations people need to be aware of?

A: No


Q: Why have you chosen to do this at this time of year?

A: The works are programmed to follow the peak school summer holidays and Goodwood Revival to minimise disruption to the general public
