Councillors decide on preferred bypass route

A 30-year bypass saga is moving towards its final chapter as a decision was made on the preferred route.

Two proposed routes had given support, denoted by colours red and magenta.

During a special meeting of the full Arun District Council on Thursday, the magenta route was the clear winner by 31 votes to five, with three abstentions. The crimson route received five votes.

Leader Dr James Walsh said: “We’re one huge step closer to having it delivered in two or three years’ time which will benefit the residents of Arundel, benefit residents of the whole of the Arun district and improve the south coast trunk road for millions of motorists every year.”

The magenta route would see around 4.4 miles (7.3km) of new dual carriageway to the south of the existing A27, from the Crossbush junction to just west of Yapton Lane.

It would include a new bridge over Binsted Rife, with around 3.7miles (6.1km) of the existing A27 being downgraded.

Highways England's consultation continues until 24 October.

Arun District Counciml will now work alongside West Sussex County Council, Arundel Town Council, Walberton Parish Council, Lyminster and Crossbush Parish Council and the South Downs National Park Authority to prepare a Local Impact Statement.

Safety fears scupper crematorium plan

Karen Dunn

Local Democracy Reporter

A fear of traffic accidents has prompted Arun District Council to refuse plans for a crematorium off of the A259.

An application for land north of the road at Yapton was deferred in August because planning committee members were not happy with a road safety audit which had been carried out by West Sussex County Council.

The audit took place at 09:30 on 28 December, and it was agreed that a second, four-day audit should be carried out by an independent inspector, with the results presented to the committee at a meeting on 9 October.

The report raised five safety points, the first of which was the likelihood of accidents as vehicles tried to turn off the main road into Grevatts Lane West where the crematorium was to be built.

While the audit recommended signage could be put up to let drivers know the turning was approaching, members were not convinced it would be enough, and voted to refuse the application.

Wooden cross made from Titanic wreckage to be sold

An oak cross made from wreckage of the Titanic is to be sold at auction.

The piece was made by Samuel Smith, who was on board the S.S. Minia when it took part in the mission to recover the bodies of those who perished.

The Titanic, which departed from Southampton, struck an iceberg in the early hours of 15 April, 1912, killing 1,517 people.

Mr Smith picked up debris from the sinking as he helped retrieve the bodies, which were either buried at sea or taken to Halifax, Nova Scotia. He made the cross in honour of those who died.

The poignant piece, which is expected to fetch up to £18,000, will be auctioned at Henry Aldridge and Son in Devizes, Wiltshire, on 19 October.
