Shoreham Harbour transport improvements

Transport improvements now complete

Vital transport infrastructure improvements that are unlocking Shoreham Harbour's potential have been finished.

The work was able to go ahead thanks to Brighton & Hove City Council, with West Sussex County Council (WSCC) and other partners, successfully securing a £5m grant from the government’s Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) to support the Shoreham Harbour Regeneration Project [PDF 2.98mb]. The city council received around £1.7 million to improve transport links in the city.   

Improvements include

  • making best use of existing equipment at traffic signal junctions along the A259 coast road, which provides a key link to the harbour development areas
  • making improvements at the A259/Church Road and A259/Boundary Road junctions
  • installing Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) technology at a number of traffic signal junctions between the harbour redevelopment sites and Churchill Square Shopping Centre
  • new or enhanced facilities for pedestrians and cyclists incorporated into the designs to help make walking and cycling an easy transport choice for everyone
  • improved transport information at bus stops and at local rail stations are encouraging greater public transport use.
