A27 Arundel Bypass threat to destroy Binsted
Binsted village's residents and friends, like those of Walberton, Fontwell and Tortington villages, are living under a cloud. Highways England proposed, on 15 October 2020, as their Preferred Route, the aptly named "Grey" route for the A27 Arundel Bypass. This route would irreparably harm these ancient rural communities, and their beautiful landscapes.
We formed the Arundel Bypass Neighbourhood Committee in the 1980s.
All the information about the threat we currently face, and the reasons why government should choose a less destructive solution, can be found on its website www.arundelbypass.co.uk. Click on this link to go to it.
The villages will continue to argue for a less damaging alternative and to fight Highways England's destructive proposals. In the video below you see some of the impact on just one of the 3 villages severely affected:
