|Route outline (key)|
Starting at a roundabout on the A259 western bypass the B2187 heads east along a modern link road alongside the railway line. Just before the station the old A259 comes in from the right; the bridge over the River Arun has been replaced by a footbridge. After passing the station, which is a terminus, we bear left at a mini-roundabout onto the town centre relief road and soon meet the southern end of the A284.
Another mini-roundabout is soon reached where we rejoin the old A259 which comes in from the right as the B2140, and then we continue northeastwards through the suburbs. There's a sharp left-hand bend and we head almost due northwards to a roundabout on the A259 where we cannon off and regain our easterly direction. A couple of roundabouts later a spur of the B2140 is met and we turn left to go over the railway line and end at a roundabout, once again on the A259.
