There are still opportunities to view proposals for more than £20million worth of highway improvements on the A2300 corridor in Burgess Hill.

A series of public exhibitions has begun but there is still time to see and give feedback on the plans, which are aimed at easing congestion and bringing key economic benefits to the area.

Drop-in sessions are being held at:

• The Triangle Leisure Centre, Triangle Way, Burgess Hill RH15 8WA Saturday 22 September, 2pm – 6pm

• Burgess Hill Town Council, 96 Church Walk, Burgess Hill RH15 9AS Tuesday 25 September, 10am – 4pm

• The Hickstead Hotel, Jobs Lane, Hickstead RH17 5NZ Thursday 27 September, 4pm – 8pm

• Hurstpierpoint Village Centre, Trinity Road, Hurstpierpoint BN6 9UY Wednesday 3 October, 2.30pm – 6.30pm

A spokesman for West Sussex County Council said: “The project team will be on hand to answer questions and provide further information.

“Anyone who cannot attend the drop-in session can download our brochure and complete the online survey at www.westsussex.gov.uk/a2300

“Closing date for responses is midnight Sunday, 28 October, 2018.

“The majority of funding for Phase 1 of the scheme will be provided by central government through the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership’s Local Growth Fund. The remaining funds will be provided by the county council and from developer contributions.
