Sussex: Roadworks Finished For Bank Holiday

Most roadworks across the region's motorways and major routes have been put on hold for the Bank Holiday weekend.

The Highways Agency aimed to complete around 31 miles of roadworks by today and are suspending a further 24 miles in the South East to help keep traffic moving.

Speaking to Heart, Mark Hallett, the operations manager at the Highways Agency said, "with the extra volumes of traffic on the road, there could be more congestion. Just by removing road works it will ease the flow of traffic and make people's journeys a lot easier."

The following roadworks will be completed in time for the August bank holiday weekend:

A23 Dean Lane Junction (near Coulsdon)
Replacement of gas main

A21 Flimwell (near Flimwell)
Footway repairs

A21 Bluemans Lane to Baldslow (near Hastings)
Resurfacing

A21 between Church Road and Cross Keys Road (near Flimwell)
Pavement investigation

A27 Southwick Tunnel (near Brighton)
Tunnel inspection and resurfacing

The restrictions around the following roadworks will be lifted temporarily over the bank holiday weekend:

A27 between Stockbridge roundabout and Bognor roundabout (near Chichester)
Drainage work

A27 Bognor roundabout (near Chichester)
New junction improvement

M25 J10-8 (near Leatherhead)
Concrete bay replacement

M23 / A23 (near Coulsdon)
Resurfacing work

But the major widening works on the A23 from B2114 junction at Handcross to B2115 junction at Warninglid (near Haywards Heath) will still be in place. There will be narrow lanes and a 40mph speed limit in operation. The highways agency are expecting minimal delays.
