    css-14iz86j-BoldText {font-weight: bold;} The route of a controversial bypass in West Sussex has been announced by Highways England

    Five of the six options for the A27 near Arundel would have involved the construction of new roads in the South Downs National Park

    Highways England says preferred route goes south of national park and will protect the environment

    But the CPRE Sussex charity said it was « appalled » by the decision to build the road

    The chosen route of the bypass goes south of the South Downs National Park and includes a new two-lane road between Crossbush in the east and a new junction near Tye Lane in the west

    CPRE Sussex said: « The new road would cross the Binsted Valley, passing near the 12th century village church, natural wetlands and a rare chalk stream

    « This useless road is a new two-lane road, destroying beautiful villages and countryside and encouraging the use of the car in climate emergencies »

    A spokesperson for Highways England said: « Plans call for a new two-lane eight-kilometer road that will divert traffic from Arundel and reduce rat traffic on the national park’s back roads

    « The new bypass will complete a missing link in the A27, the only major east-to-west route south of the M25, and bypass the South Downs National Park entirely »

    Transportation Secretary Grant Shapps said: « Today’s announcement is significant as another step has been taken to bring benefits to the region through what is now a long overdue program. »
