The primary access into the site will be from the realigned A29 and Barnham Road from the north, and the realigned A29 to the south. The realigned A29 provides the primary road corridor through the masterplan and is currently intended to be a 30mph road.


A series of secondary east-west vehicle connections are proposed within the masterplan to connect with the existing A29. North of the railway line, the east-west link will provide a connection from Westergate via a new access on Pine Close from the west and towards Barnham Station in the east.


The connection east will be a no through-route for vehicles to Barnham and the station, instead leading to additional station parking and a bus turnaround area with access to Barnham via a pedestrian and cycle only route. The secondary connections and other internal masterplan roads are expected to have a design speed of 20-30mph.

Discussions are underway with bus operators to extend local services along the realigned A29 and along the east-west route. 

Walking and Cycling
The proposed development will include a comprehensive network of walking and cycling routes that enhance the existing Public Rights of Way and make connection with existing paths. A fitness trail will link these and is expected to run around the perimeter of the new settlement to the north and south of the railway.

The cycle and pedestrian routes will connect both east-west and north-south and will link into routes in the wider area to provide ease of access. This will include a walking and cycling connection to Barnham Station with additional car parking for the station also provided. The details of the pedestrian and cycle link are still being agreed and the plan provides an illustrative arrangement of how this could be delivered.

A walking and cycling route is also proposed in the north of the site to connect   with the Five Schools footpath and also a potential route along the Portsmouth to Arundel Canal in the south of the site.
