Railway Approach

An innovative, virtual exhibition is being created to give people an opportunity to see proposals to revitalise a key ‘gateway’ area into Worthing.

The Railway Approach scheme is connected to both the regeneration at Teville Gate and a partnership programme of town centre public realm improvements, including Portland Road - all representing a major investment in the Worthing economy.

Public engagement on the Railway Approach proposals starts on 29 March and will include the interactive exhibition room, where online visitors can “move around”, click on areas of interest, see plans and visualisations, select information to read and contact the project team for more information.

The proposals aim to provide accessible and attractive spaces for residents and visitors alike, including pedestrians, cyclists, and train, bus, and taxi users. They include:

  • A new-look pavement area in front of the town's central railway station, with a new pedestrian crossing and planting
  • A boulevard effect at the Eastern part of the scheme, with wider pavements, a tree-lined area and panting

A letter is being sent to around 14,000 residents and businesses inviting comments on the proposals.  These local people will be given a link to access the exhibition that will “open” on the 31 March and run until the 30 April.  Online briefing sessions are also planned with project team making a short presentation and answer questions.

Anyone who is unable to access the internet can telephone WSCC Highways contact centre on 01243 642105 or email project team at RailwayApproach@wsp.com and request information to be posted to them in a suitable format.

The Railway Approach improvement project is being led by the county council, working in partnership with Worthing Borough Council and with Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) funding.
