A27 Falmer drainage repairs and maintenance
We’re carrying out repairs and maintenance to the drainage on the A27 Falmer. These improvements are essential for the safety of road users.
We’re carrying out repairs and maintenance to the drainage on the A27 Falmer and A270 Lewes Road.
We’ll carry out the work in stages and, for the everyone’s safety, there will be temporary traffic management in place around the A27 junctions with the A270 and B2123 at Falmer while we complete the work.
These improvements are essential for the safety of road users. Our drainage systems are there to remove water, for example rain, from the road efficiently and effectively. To continue to do this, the systems sometimes need to be cleared of any debris that has run off the roads or have any damage repaired.
- Thursday 26 to Friday 27 May 2022 – 8pm to 6am
We’ll be closing the westbound exit slip and a lane on both the westbound A27 and entry slip at the junction with the B2123 (Falmer). A lane will remain open on the carriageway and entry slip road during our work.
Please follow signed diversion to leave the A27 westbound during the closure by continuing to the next junction and returning.
Access will be maintained to Falmer Station, bus stops and properties during this work.
- Monday 20 to Friday 24 June 2022 – 8pm to 6am
We’ll be closing the eastbound entry slip at A270 (Lewes Road) and the eastbound exit slip at the B2123 (Falmer). There will also be a lane closed on the eastbound and westbound carriageway close to the Falmer junction, and on the westbound entry slip at the B2123.
To join the eastbound A27 during the slip road closure, please use Coldean Lane to join at the Hollingbury junction. Please follow signed diversion to leave the A27 eastbound by continuing to the next junction (Ashcombe / Kingston) and returning.
A lane will remain open on the main carriageway during our work. You’ll still be able to access to Falmer station, properties and bus stops as usual on the westbound carriage, however, the bus stop on the eastbound A27 at Falmer will be suspended overnight during the closures, with buses diverted via Stony Mere Way and University Way.
If we continue to find more repairs are needed, meaning we’re are unable to finish our work as planned on the dates above, there will be additional weeknight closures to get the work completed. Keep an eye on our Twitter and this webpage, where we’ll post updates as our work progresses, and provide details of any changes or additional closures.
