Britain's most persistent high risk Á' road is set for an upgrade with help from a £1 million cash boost announced by the Government on 14 November.

Under Secretary of State for Transport Andrew Jones MP said that he hoped the targeted funding for West Sussex County Council would be used in part to improve the A285 between Petworth and Chichester.  The steeply winding road which climbs the South Downs experienced 23 fatal and serious injury crashes between 2012-14 with motorcyclists involved in 39% of accidents.  Run offs accounted for 48% of accident types.
