With Burgess Hill set to see major growth and significant improvements to housing, jobs and social and community facilities, it is essential that this is delivered in tandem with significant road improvements to facilitate these changes.
A £23m investment to improve the A2300 will help drive forward the new high-tech corridor of business park developments and the Northern Arc housing development, by widening and upgrading this main access route into Burgess Hill from the A23. These improvements will help relieve congestion and provide a better connection to and from the M23, M25 and wider South East region.
Preparation work for the A2300 improvements began in 2017 and works are due to commence early 2020. Once complete the improvements will provide:
The Northern Arc development will deliver a new spine road between the upgraded A2300 and the A273 Isaac’s Lane across the development to provide additional road capacity in the local area. Finally, new schools and other social infrastructure including high quality pedestrian and cycle corridors within the Northern Arc development and linking with a wider pedestrian and cycle network will also help reduce travel demand during peak times.

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.View
