Changes to travel and transport in the city

Closed 14 Mar 2021

Opened 29 Jan 2021


We are seeing significant changes to the way people are using the city's streets. More of us are walking and cycling for exercise and to get to work, school and other destinations.

We have a strong instruction, and funding from central government to make active travel an attractive option for short journeys (or as part of a longer journey).

Active travel is travelling in ways that are physically active - like walking, wheeling (wheelchair / mobility aid), cycling or scooting - for all or part of your journey.

We have already installed temporary cycle lanes on Old Shoreham Road and along the seafront (A259).

We have listened to your feedback and will make improvements to these temporary cycle lanes.

We are proposing to extend these temporary cycle lanes and introduce complementary measures alongside them.

We have the opportunity to make permanent improvements to other areas in the city.

We want to hear your views on the existing temporary cycle lanes as well as these proposals.

Your feedback will be used to inform revised designs, which will be assessed by the council’s Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee.

For temporary schemes these will continue to be reviewed in line with feedback received during this consultation.

Any decision to make schemes permanent would also need to be decided by the Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee.

If you want to request a paper questionnaire or another format, send an email to or phone 01273 293 614 and leave a message with your request. 

The survey is in 5 sections: an introductory set of questions followed by questions on the 4 areas of the city where changes are proposed.

These are:

  • Western Road
  • Preston Circus to Patcham Roundabout (A23)
  • Old Shoreham Road (A270)
  • Seafront (A259)

Please complete the sections of the questionnaire for the area(s) most relevant to you. You do not have to fill in all sections.

There is information to help you complete this questionnaire which gives background information and details of each scheme.

There is also some information and images of our plans within the questionnaire. Alternatively you can view and download our consultation leaflets for each area using the links at the bottom of this page.

You can save your progress and leave the online survey at anytime, by clicking ‘Save and come back later’. 

You must return to it and submit your response by 14 March 2021.
