The South Downs National Park Authority has obtained £5.1m (including £3.8m from the Department for Transport and £1.3m local funding.) to improve cycle infrastructure in the national park, announced 12th August.
A cycle route across the Downs along the Old A3 from Queen Elizabeth Country Park into Petersfield.

Completes a section of Shipwrights Way
Meon Valley Trail
Upgrading of a core route to "all-ability". This sets the standard for subsequent upgrading of the route to West Meon.
Continuation of the off-road section to West Dean along the former railway alignment. This avoids the diversion back on to the A286 and the narrow bridge pinch point.
The SDNPA have a longer term plan to extend Centurion Way to Midhurst but that is not yet funded.
Barnham to Bignor
A new route from Barnham gateway station to Bignor with new and upgraded paths.
