The Angmering section runs from the Station Road (Blue Star) roundabout i to the A280 roundabout, including the Roundstone roundabout. This will feature a new cycling and pedestrian route to the south, separated from the main carriageway by a verge, and a new pedestrian footpath to the north. The existing controlled crossing connecting Angmering School and Downs Way will be upgraded to a Toucan crossing. New Toucan crossings will be provided adjacent to the Station Road Footbridge and also near to Haskins, linking to a new westbound bus stop. Right turns across the carriageway, such as at Haskins, will be closed. Here's an artist's impression of the proposed roadway as viewed looking east from above the Station Road roundabout:

After discussion it was agreed by all that a questionnaire be compiled and sent to all residents in these two areas.
