Angmering Bypass


Angmering Bypass by end 02
The new Angmering Bypass will run from the large roundabout on the A259 just east of Roundstone Garden Centre, and west of the Pick-Your-Own centre, north to meet the A280 Water Lane.
Delays because of Foot and Mouth precautions have meant that ground and archaeological surveys on the route are still not finished. Subject to the weather, actual work could start in November this year, with completion by end 2002. This will be welcome here as well as in Angmering, as it could take a lot of traffic away from Titnore Lane. But we do hope that the single carriageway on the A259 past the Roundstone Garden Centre will be sorted out.
The cost of bypass is borne by WSCC with a substantial contribution from the developers of the 500 houses being built at Roundstone lane. We note that remains of a Roman farmstead have been uncovered during the house building development. If such remains are uncovered in the route of the bypass, will this cause a further delay?
