The new development is being built to the south east of the A270 Lewes Road, Brighton, in Woollards Field. The site has good bus and rail links, and good access to major roads for cars.
Getting to the site
The former South East England Development Agency (SEEDA) completed roadworks in the Falmer area that has improved access to the site. These include:
- a new flyover
- improvements to the junction of the A27 and A270
- widening the road from the new junction to the railway tunnel
- a footpath and cyclepath with CCTV coverage, running along the south side of the railway line from Falmer station to the railway tunnel by Woollards Field
- widening the access road to Stanmer Park
- a new link road to the University of Sussex.
The Keep is a 10 minute walk from Falmer train station, and there will be a new secure and well-lit footpath running from the station to the site entrance.
There will also be new and improved bus stops on both sides of the A27 with pedestrian links into Woollards Field.
By car or coach
The development will have a car park that will include disabled spaces, an area for bikes, and a coach turning point.
A new footpath and cycle path will run along the southern edge of Woollards Field. This will join up with the new path from Falmer Station at one end, and the Moulsecoomb estate at the other.
You can see the plans for all the access routes and the car park in our section on maps, plans and illustrations.
