A23 Brighton Road Hooley improvements

Proposed scheme to improve congestion and safety on the A23 Brighton Road, Hooley, Surrey.

Region:  South East
Start date:  April 2020 (TBC)
Cost:  ÂŁ3.8 million
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Improvement Scheme
End date:  March 2021 (TBC)
Programme:  Junction Improvement programme

Progress report

The scheme design has been completed following a second public information event in March 2019. However, due to a review of schemes set to be delivered this financial year (2019/20), the A23 Brighton Road Hooley improvement has been delayed.

This means we will no longer look to start construction of the A23 Brighton Road Hooley improvement in this financial year. The earliest we will look to start this scheme is now April 2020. We will make a further decision as to whether the scheme will proceed in January 2020.

What's next?

If the scheme is taken forward, residents will be contacted further with specific construction dates.

Why we need this scheme

The A23 Brighton Road through Hooley is a strategic route between Brighton and London, and is a key route for motorists travelling to and from Gatwick Airport.

The proposed scheme will ease congestion, improve safety and provide better links for pedestrians and cyclists.

Aims

  • reduce accident rates
  • reduce congestion
  • improve traffic flow
  • improve provision for cyclists and pedestrians

The scheme in detail

Proposed improvements include:

  • reduction in speed limit from 40mph to 30mph through residential area
  • upgrade and synchronise the existing traffic signal timings through the crossroads of the A23 with Netherne Drive and Star Lane
  • new shared footway/cycleway along the A23
  • widen the A23 northbound to two lanes from Church Lane to Netherne Drive
  • widen the A23 southbound to two lanes from Netherne Drive to the Esso garage

Environmental information

We are aware that Hooley is in an Air Quality Management Area and the scheme will ensure there is no detriment to air quality.
