We’ll shortly be carrying out work to resurface two sections of the A23 southbound carriageway between the Aldbourne and Patcham. This work will improve journeys for our customers and ensure the network remains in a safe condition.
This work is currently scheduled to take place over five weeks starting on Monday 2 August 2021. Work will take place overnight (8pm to 6am), when there are fewer vehicles on the road, causing less disruption.
For the safety of our workforce and customers, we will be closing the A23 southbound carriageway from the A272 Bolney junction down to the A27 Patcham roundabout.
During the closures the following signed diversions will be in place:
- Traffic heading east of Brighton – follow the A272 east to North Chailey, then south on the A275 towards Lewes and Ashcombe roundabout.
- Traffic heading west of Brighton – follow the A272 west, then south on the A24 Worthing Road. At Washington head east along the A283 to join the A27 at Shoreham.
Access will be maintained for emergency service vehicles on blue light calls only.
Please note that these works are subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. We’ll advertise the closures on yellow signs placed in advance alongside the A23, and on our South-East Twitter page (@HighwaysSEAST)
We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption you may experience during this work.
