09 - Bus infrastructure improvements (bus stops and real time passenger information)
Improvements are proposed to key bus stops throughout Burgess Hill to include improved passenger waiting facilities and provision of additional Real Time Passenger Information (RTPI) screens to support increased use and service improvements to be delivered via the Brookleigh (Northern Arc) development.
The current proposals identify a number of existing bus stops that experience higher levels of passenger patronage and would support improvements and installation of RTPI.
The proposals were subject to public engagement in May and June 2020 and have been developed further following this engagement to prepare proposed improvements that will be subject to further public engagement before being finalised.
Better Links To Your Town Centre
The £21.8m package of transport improvements for the town centre will help create more sustainable transport measures, improve connectivity, congestion and journey times. This will include improved access arrangements for Burgess Hill and Wivelsfield train stations as well as new and improved cycle routes across town.
Upgrading Road Infrastructure
A £23m investment into the A2300 will help drive forward the new high-tech corridor of business park developments by widening and upgrading this main access route into Burgess Hill from the A23. These improvements will help relieve congestion and also help provide a better onward link to the wider south east region.
