The pop-up cycle lanes were set up along Worthing’s A24 Broadwater Road during the summer as the government looked to capitalise on an increase in cycling during the summer lockdown and move people away from public transport.

However, after an overwhelmingly negative response, the decision to scrap the scheme was taken by the cabinet member for highways and infrastructure Roger Elkins towards the end of October.
