Many are seeking changes to the Southern Gateway plan as it is deemed as flawed because it does not address the need to avoid the current congestion at the 2 railway crossing to the South.
Freeflow offers the City a gateway worthy of the name by providing a dedicated new road and bridge solution, removing congestion, pollution and mounting frustration of those trying to access Chichester. It proposes the closure of both crossings saving over 20,000 working days wasted every year waiting at the crossings.
The route creates minimal visual impact allowing the closure of both crossings, and with minimal impact on the road network during construction of the bridge
Freeflow offers significant public realm benefits around the train station, removing the through traffic making it pedestrian and cycle friendly
Freeflow proposes a high quality Exhibition / Conference / Performance venue, Hotel, Commercial and Retail space and additional homes to enhance the local economy and create a vibrant southern quarter to Chichester
Freeflow will help alleviate traffic congestion on the A27 by not requiring people to divert to other access routes into the city as they currently do
