In December, the Government announced a £350 million investment in A27 improvements including the Arundel bypass.
Speaking during Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday 24 June, Chancellor George Osborne repeated the Government’s commitment. He said, “We are going to go on investing in the south coast.
“At the general election, Labour wanted to cancel improvements to the A27; that spoke volumes for its long-term vision for our country.
“We are going to go on investing in that vital road on the south coast and the other key infrastructure we need – road and rail and broadband - across the south of England.”
Nick Gibb said, “I am delighted that the A27 improvements are going ahead. This is a huge amount of capital spending that will improve traffic flows through West Sussex and will be a huge boost to businesses which want to relocate to the area and to those businesses which have suffered from the congestion.”
