Possible new access into the SDNP

Has anyone else seen the photo's of the access track accross the downs for the offshore wind farm project that run north from Lamleys Lane Sompting and wondered it that could be utilised for cyclists and walkers ?

Harrison Road (restricted) Byway Resurfacing Now Complete

I am pleased to advise that works to improve Harrison Road for the benefit of walkers and cyclists will begin shortly.  A Tarmac surface of generally 3 metres will be laid subject to narrowing around a couple of existing sheds; ancillary works, including installation of bollards off Southdown View Road to prevent future public vehicle access, will also be completed.  Some clearance will be undertaken in the week beginning 9 November (to ensure enough space for plant and machinery to operate), and subject to no significant unforeseen issues arising the substan

Cycle Velodrome Events Lined Up For Worthing

The WCF 'schools project' run by Gavin Ross secures funding for 2015

After the highly successful 1st event at St Andrews in September, WCF has secured sufficient funding from the Worthing CLC, the local Safer Roads Partnership and the Day Group to run events at Davison, Worthing High & Durrington High in the coming months.

As well as a visual presentation and some scenario exercises based around road awareness and safer cycling, Year 11 students with bikes had front & back 'wrap on' lights together with tyre valve flashing warning lights fitted to their bikes.

A27 Lancing to Shoreham Cycleway

I have now contacted the Highways Agency, and this is indeed a shared-use footway and cycleway that they are building, along with upgrading the pedestrian crossing at the sports centre to be a Toucan crossing usable legally by bicycles as well as pedestrians!
