Please Help Stop The Destruction of Sussex Countryside, Villages, Habitats and Communities! URGENT!

Local voices against the shockingly destructive ‘grey’ route and how you can have your say. PLEASE HELP save our communities by responding to National Highways’ statutory consultation before March 8th 2022.

The best way to respond to National Highways is by email

Tell them your views, tell them that you reject Grey Route, tell them why it’s the wrong solution in a climate emergency. Every response will make a difference.

Anyone can respond to this consultation, more than once, raising any issues.

You can also comment in the National Highways online survey or on a paper form. Details at

Proposed grey route is an 8km stretch of 70mph dual carriageway.

It severely damages Binsted, Walberton, Tortington and Fontwell villages, the South Downs National Park setting and access.

It passes very close to Walberton and Binsted Primary School, Binsted Church and Tortington Church.

Additional information: since filming these interviews, National Highways has adjusted the alignment of Grey Route so that is 100m from Binsted church 10m as previously intended. This will still completely ruin Binsted Valley and the church setting. New information states that Grey Route will route an additional 1300 cars per day through Walberton Village, putting 300 primary school children in extreme danger. Videography by Sasha Neal.

PLEASE watch this video, please share this video, and most importantly of all, please send a quick email to say you object to this destructive road plan, and if you have time send a similar message via the consultation too.

Please do so and share with everyone you know, as often as possible between now and March 8th. You can help save these villages, countryside, habitats and communities from the destruction and greed of Highways England!

Thanks so much for helping protect our planet.
