Newhaven Harbour Access Road Opens to NMUs

The harbour access road on the Eastern side of Newhaven opened to pedestrians and cyclists on the 26th July. The rest of the road will be opened to motor traffic in August as some works are not yet complete.

The new road is 530 metres long with a 120 metre long bridge along with two roundabouts. The entire road is 1,350 metres long and features a shared cycle/footway along its entire length.

The road doesn’t yet connect to anything, however it does open up land for development for harbour related businesses as well as providing a connection to PRoWs which are currently only accessible through paths within the harbour.
