Projected traffic level on the Lyminster Bypass northern section

The request was successful.

Dear West Sussex County Council,

Could you please tell me the projected average 2 way vehicle movements a day used to inform the design of the Lyminster Bypass (northern section) for as many years forward as you have calculated them. Highways England in the second consultation documentation for the Arundel Bypass show it as around 30,000, a 60% increase, whichever option was chosen?

Yours faithfully,

Derrick Chester

Seems of that it is only a single carriageway when the predicted traffic is above 18k
