Traffic Regulation Order - Clarification for Rusper Road

11 November 2020

A Temporary Traffic Regulation Order was recently published for a closure on Rusper Road, no right turns and temporary speed limits on the A264. However, we wanted to clarify that Rusper Road south will not be closed for 10-18 months as the Order suggested.

The Order is worded to allow for works to take place within an 18-month period, rather than for the entirety of it. The construction programme is currently anticipated to be around 10 months, and we are working closely with West Sussex County Council and NATTA, our appointed contractor, to agree how these works will be managed with as little disruption as possible. However, Rusper Road south will be closed for approximately 15 weeks.

We will continue to keep you up to date as the programme for these works progresses. A programme of work will be published in partnership with West Sussex County Council in the next couple of weeks. We will endeavour to give as much notice as possible for road closures, which will always be minimum of 2 weeks, and we will also be notifying the local emergency services to ensure they are all aware of the closure in advance.

These works are taking place now in order to support the opening of Bohunt School in December 2021 by delivering major utility connections to the school site and wider development, along with providing safe access for pedestrians and cyclists from the south.

What are we proposing?

The site is located on land north of the A264 in Horsham. It has planning permission for a sustainable development including:

  • 2,750 new homes in a range of sizes and tenures, including affordable housing
  • 500,000 sq ft of new employment space
  • An education campus for Bohunt Horsham School
  • A new sports hub
  • New pedestrian, cycle and road connections
  • Extensive green space and landscaping
