‘White elephant’ plans for A24 scrapped. Controversial long term plans to upgrade the A24 have been shelved. The proposals included changes to the road between Southwater and Ashington, and a new separated junction at Dial Post.

The group welcomed West Sussex County Council’s announcement this week that the plans would be withdrawn due to lack of funding.
