This month we are asking you to speak up about changes being proposed as part of the Crawley Growth Programme. The changes are designed to ease congestion along the London Road, at various “pinch point” junctions and a new bus lane. I’m still also keen to hear what you think about the business parking permit scheme. These changes will impact how Manor Royal works. Don’t be quiet.  Steve Sawyer, Executive Director, MRBD Ltd

Your comments are invited on plans to improve junctions, a new one way system, improvements to Tushmore roundabout, a new bus lane and more. All being delivered as part of the Crawley Growth Programme. Three drop-in sessions are planned starting this week and you can comments online.
