Worthing is a large seaside town in Sussex, west of Brighton, where the A24 meets the A27.

It is notorious for being by far the worst quality section of the A27 between the M27 at Portsmouth and the A23 at Brighton, being a mixture of urban single or dual carriageway full of traffic lights, right turns and roundabouts, between two fully dualled and grade separated sections either side, and the Sompting Bypass in the middle.

A bypass of the town has been intermittently proposed since the 1960s, even going as far as compulsory purchasing property, but has yet to be seriously considered.
