The Department of Transport is still refusing to release the business case for an offline dual carriageway between Lewes and Polegate - but has now issued the scope that Highways England gave to consultants back in 2017.

Insiders have told us that this was a "quick and dirty job", and it's crystal clear that corners were cut in the six month study. No other forms of transport - rail, bus, trams, cycling - were to be part of the calculations; and there would NO PUBLIC CONSULTATION. This is how our elected representatives and their paid officials drive transport planning in this country, and it is a disgrace. 

7.9 Modal scope

a) The study will be predominantly single mode in scope, covering strategic and
local authority road networks.

7.10 Exclusions
a) It is assumed that there will be no Public Consultation as part of PCF Stage
