West Sussex County Council (WSCC) has made the application under the Local Transport Improvements Programme, a spokesman said.

He added: “This will be processed and given a priority score so it can be compared to other applications and their priority levels.

“It is at an early stage of the process and currently no determination has been made whether or not to progress to the feasibility study stage.”


A spokesman for Rudgwick Parish Council added: “We have received notification that WSCC Highways have made an application to the WSCC Local Transport Improvement Programme (LTIP) for a bridleway bridge at the A281 Downs Link crossing.

“This will ensure that the project has a feasibility study and costing carried out so it can be evaluated to the programmes criteria and along WSCC priorities.

“It would then be a listed project for which internal and external funding can be sought.”
