CAMPAIGNERS fighting for improvements to the A27 have launched a survey.

The A27 Action Campaign, led by West Sussex County Council, is gathering evidence about the issues people suffer with when they get stuck in traffic jams along the route.

Up until now the focus has been on businesses and how the congested trunk road affects the economy.

The survey takes five minutes to complete and asks questions such as how the A27 affects every day journeys to work, hospital appointments, school or college and nursery schools.

The A27 is one of six transport schemes in England the government is considering investing in.

However, there is stiff competition for the cash in places such as Newcastle.

Councillor Pieter Montyn, who heads transport in West Sussex, said: ‘We want residents to help us understand the difficulties the A27 causes them.

‘The survey will help boost our case for investment.’
