The main transport nowadays is the car.The A27 is a very busy road,there are nearly always traffic jams caused by the roadworks so this means many long delays and people are always frustrated at not getting to work on time.People have wanted a by-pass since 1939,and the government have at last agreed to build it.Work has just started.The by-pass will link Chichester to Havant in one section.The by-pass will take the traffic around Fishbourne instead of through the middle of the village.The by-pass is going under Salthill Road,and fly overs will be going over the railway.You will no longer be able to drive along Fishbourne Road to Chichester.We hope this will make the village a lot quieter and a more peaceful place to live in.
