The Forum had a positive meeting last week with Horsham’s MP, Francis Maude.

We raised our concerns about the lack of safe and attractive crossings of Horsham’s northern bypass for people walking and cycling. We discussed the failure to deliver the Missing Link in the Horsham to Crawley cycle route, and also the potentially unattractive and hostile crossings proposed for the new junctions accompanying the North of Horsham development.

We made the case that each of these new junctions should incorporate underpasses to provide safe and convenient crossings for all users, and also suggested that a proposed bridge over the bypass would be much less attractive than an underpass, given the large amount of height gain such a bridge would involve.

Mr Maude took our concerns on board and promised to pass them on.
