Lower speed limit zone on A259

LOWER speed limits have been being brought in along a major entrance into the Bognor Regis area.

The 30mph and 40mph zones on Chichester Road have been introduced by West Sussex County Council highways officers around the site where the road is being joined by the Bognor Regis northern relief road.

The initial temporary nature of the reductions in speed – from 60mph – will be followed by a permanent order.

A statement from the county council said: “These speed limits are required to maintain safety at the recently constructed roundabout and nearby pedestrian crossing.”
