Location & Transport
Momentum comprises three sites, Preston Barracks, Mithras car park and Watts car park sites all located off the Lewes Road. The three sites will make up the joint planning submission between U+I, Brighton & Hove City Council and the University of Brighton.
Momentum is situated approximately 1.5 miles to the north east of Brighton & Hove city centre. It lies in a valley beside the south coast railway line and is served by Lewes Road (A270) which provides a direct route into the city centre.
Lewes Road links with the A27 trunk route which is the major east west route along the Sussex coast and the A23/M23 to London and Gatwick Airport. Moulsecoomb railway station, the main east west coastal railway, is within walking distance of the site. Trains from Moulsecoomb go to Brighton Station in under 10 minutes and in the opposite direction to other towns along the coast including Eastbourne and Hastings.
