Temporary roadworks to take place on busy Felpham road

MOTORISTS have been warned temporary roadworks will be carried out on one of Felpham’s main roads this month.


The works will be started on the B2259 Felpham Way dual-carriageway from April 23 as part of the major developments at the University of Chichester.


They are due to take seven weeks to complete and are needed to create a new permanent entrance to the £35m engineering and digital technology park being built on the campus next to the road.


A university spokesman said: “The developments will include the installation of new lighting for the pathway and road, a new central island between the two lanes, and a pelican crossing to allow pedestrians to safely cross the carriageway.”


Additional works have already begun on developing the pavement and verge which surrounds the technology park.


“The temporary roadworks will be removed and the B2259 Felpham Way opened as normal once the developments have been completed,” added the spokesman.


The first students will set to study in the new centre this September.
