Robin Hood Roundabout is a roundabout on the eastern edge of Horsham on the A24 and the end of the B2237. The roundabout was first constructed in the 1960s in conjunction with the Horsham bypass, until the early 1990s it was larger roundabout, supposedly due to the possibility that the A24 would become a more preferred route than the A23 for those going from the south coast to London. It was reduced in size to a pretty average roundabout for a dual carriageway of its size.
Initially built as part of the Horsham Bypass
Enlarged as the A24/A264 corridor was widened to a dual carriageway throughout, increasing the throughput of the junction
As part of a housing development on the Northern side of the Town, this and maybe other roundabouts are being made larger and signalised to improve throughput, safety and NMU provisions. Due to start reconstruction in Spring 2021 and taking 1 year to complete it involves widening the A24 approaches to four/three lanes from the current two, as well as signalisation of 3/4 arms and improved pedestrians and cycleways.
