Will the town centre regeneration lead to more traffic problems?
A major part of the town centre regeneration plan is aimed at mitigating potential traffic problems. The wider regeneration scheme will include reviewing the link roads into and out of the town. This will be supported by a £23m upgrade to the A2300 as well as an additional £12.5m funding package for transport improvements secured by local councils for Burgess Hill, which will build a more sustainable transport package for the town, improving connectivity, congestion and journey time reliability.
What transport improvements will be made to access new jobs?
MSDC is currently looking into the redevelopment of Burgess Hill and Wivelsfield stations. We have also recently secured funding from the government to improve local roads in Burgess Hill with the £23m upgrade of the A2300 relieving congestion and accelerating the delivery of the Northern Arc housing development and the employment areas in the local area.
