New information

Here in East Sussex we should take note of the way Highways England is handling the A27 project around Arundel in West Sussex. After betting the bank on £270m "Option 5a" and finding themselves in court, they've discovered "new information", and are re-running the public consultation with revised Options 1 and 3 back in play. Feels like a road at any cost...

We all look forward to the new information being made public. Remember, here in East Sussex, Highways England has found a way of re-calculating the economics of an off-line dual carriageway for the A27 East Of Lewes so that it has, suddenly and magically, become good value for money, at upwards of £450m. The mechanics of this re-calculation have yet to be shared with residents.
