The C622 (West Sussex) is a road in the western ward of Horsham, Broadbridge Heath. It was originally created as a southern bypass of ward along with the western bypass (A281) and with the upgrade of Farthings Hill Interchange on the A24. It is now the newest C road in West Sussex. From its opening to December 2015 when High Wood Hill Interchange was opened it was known officially part of the A264, with the A264 coming from the A24 on the eastern side, and heading south on the western side. However it was typically also called the A281, as the A281 continues heading east on the eastern side as well as before the bypass was built to bypass primarily the A281. Before its declassification, most signs shows it to be part of A264 and also being a Primary Route (which is was decades ago but not for a long time).
Shortly after its declassification, in 2020 it saw major highway changes, these included local access changes at Newbridge Roundabout by putting local access onto a T junction situated along the C622. Changes at the tesco's roundabout and Farthings Hill Interchange, reduction of lanes on the dual carriageway and new cycle and footpaths, and a section in the middle which is buses and taxis only, forcing people to drive along the new bypass or through a residential area.
