A grand vision to create a ‘continental-style’ boulevard while improving access for all to Worthing town centre has been unveiled by West Sussex County Council.
The proposals, which also include pedestrianising some areas, focus on key routes and connections from the railway station to the seafront, such as the station approach, Portland Road and South Street.
The plans are on display at Worthing Library until Friday January 12th. If you have questions a drop-in will be held this Friday (Jan 5) from 1pm to 6pm at the library
They form part of a ‘Growth Deal’ agreed by West Sussex County Council and Worthing Borough Council earlier this year.
The deal sets out a joint pledge to work in partnership on a number of key projects to deliver regeneration and growth in the area during the next five years.
The improvements will help to connect and enhance six key redevelopment sites in the town (Teville Gate Site, Union Place Site, Grafton Site, Stagecoach Site, Aquarena Site, and the Civic Site) through a series of ‘public realm’ improvements.
