OBSERVER POLL: Should the Oving Lights be kept?

The lights will definitely now be closed after the governmental decision
The lights will definitely now be closed after the governmental decision

The future of the Oving Traffic Lights remains up in the air.

The decision in 2013 to close the junction was overturned by Chichester District Council’s planning committee last month, who voted to approve an application by Oving Parish Council to save the lights.

However, the final decision will ultimately now be made by the Secretary of State for Transport, Chris Grayling, because the A27 comes under Highways England’s control.

Ahead of the final decision, the Observer is asking readers if they want to see the Oving Traffic Lights kept or removed, and you can take part in our unofficial poll by simply clicking one of the two options.
