Safety Improvement

Remove town centre dual carriageways

Wish type(s): Long-term aim, New infrastructure, Safety Improvement

Remove all town centre dual carriageways (A24 & North Street), narrowing them to wide single carriageway roads with segregated cycle paths, consistent pavements and planting (even additional parking if required as an incentive). This would negate the need for two stage pedestrian crossings and move the town centre away from car-centric. It would practically guarantee some shift to cycling and in some ways negate the vagueries of the Broadwater – Town Centre route (particularly for cyclists heading south where Upper High Street meets the dual carriageway of North Street).

Cycle path beside the A24

Build a cycle path connecting Worthing to destinations north of the Downs. A parallel route running alongside the A24 on the eastern verge, where there is plenty of room.

20mph speed limits on all residential roads

20mph speed limits on all residential roads. This is community-wide objective, not just a cycling objective

Wish type(s): Safety Improvement

Goring – Worthing cycle route A259 between Mulberry Lane and Wallace Avenue. This needs to be brought up to DfT minimum standards (or better!). It should be continuous, the speed limit should be reduced from 40mph to 30mph, the on-road cycle lanes need to be widened in places, in particular the westbound stretch leading to George V Avenue, which is less than 1m wide

I would go further than that and call for a narrowing of the road profile to accommodate a segregated cycle lane with separate pavement for pedestrians. There is more than enough space.
