Angmering Traffic Management Scheme Update (3)

Monday 12th March to Friday 23rd March 2018

Stagecoach have now announced that due to the closure of Station Road, Angmering for traffic calming works, service 9 buses will need to divert via A259 Roundstone bypass, Roundstone Lane and the High Street in both directions. Customers who would normally board/alight at the bus stops near Dell Drive and North Drive in Station Road are advised to join the service at either Angmering Station or Angmering Village Green instead.

For buses going to Littlehampton, it is assumed that the temporary bus stop put near Pearl Dental by The Green (and then taken away) will be put back again and that Littlehampton/Arundel buses will then go via Water Lane - Weavers Hill - Roundstone Lane - A259 - Angmering Station. Buses to Worthing will no doubt use the reverse route but will stop outside Tea in the Square.

Angmering Traffic Management Scheme Update (2)

Further to our article of 23 February, WSCC / Balfour Beatty have advised that the "recent inclement weather and discovery of unforeseen site conditions have caused delays in the works programme for this schemes delivery. In order to ensure that works within closer proximity to the school can be completed during the Easter School holiday period adjustments to the programme have had to be made at short notice".

Work is expected to take place between Monday 12th March 2018 and Friday 16th March on several points along Station Road, Angmering to install ‘tabletops’ and ‘speed cushions’ for traffic calming purposes. Locations are:

During this next period of work, traffic management will consist of a 24 hour road closure, for which a diversion route will be in place. Access will always be provided to residents within closed areas and Mill Road, from the south (via A259) although there may be some delay to ensure the site is safe to pass through. The planned work is subject to changes due to weather conditions, equipment breakdown or emergency work taking priority.
