Worthing traffic calming scheme

NEW traffic calming measures in Heene Road, Worthing, are due to start next week.

Work on the £50,000 West Sussex County Council scheme is expected to take four weeks and will be largely carried out by the council’s highways contractor Balfour Beatty.

The improvements will include:

Marine Parade junction:

A new larger pedestrian island with tactile paving crossing points.

Build-out on the west side to slow traffic entering Heene Road and reduce crossing widths for pedestrians.

Rowlands Road junction:

Realignment and enlargement of pedestrian island south of Rowlands Road and tactile paving crossing points.

Hatched area and red surfacing on south-east corner of Rowlands Road to bring Give Way line forward and improve visibility northward for vehicles exiting. This will not affect movement of larger vehicles.

Manor Road Junction:

Realignment of kerb line on south-west side to bring Give Way line forward and improve visibility northward for vehicles exiting.

Crossroads warning sign north of Manor Road southbound.

The scheme will also include a new central hatched area from Marine Parade to north of Abbey Road to slow traffic approaching the shopping area and Rowlands Road junction.
