No New Arundel Bypass

No New Arundel Bypass

Please don't support a new bypass at Arundel. There is local support for online improvements, combined with investment and improvements to public transport, to improve congestion.

Why is this important?

Any route of a new road will be hugely damaging to the environment, cutting through farmland and ancient woodland, or damaging Binsted village and part of Walberton. This is countryside that has been labelled too precious to lose by previous government. The road will cause more pollution and it will also cause new congestion - it has been proved that new roads bring more traffic. We believe that local people would prefer the traffic problems here to be solved by other means which are achievable and would provide an acceptable compromise.

Reasons for signing

  • I don't live anywhere near Arundel, but I want to see an end to this road bypass madness across the country. Road bypasses promote private motoring at the expense of public transport. Public transport is more energy-efficient and probably makes people slightly more active. Stop the bypasses, help public transport flourish.
  • I regularly walk and sketch in the countryside around Arundel, therefore I'd be very upset if this damaging, unsustainable road scheme was to go ahead.
  • An off-line bypass is expensive and will not benefit locals, but will attract more traffic to race through the area.
