    Resurfacing update

    We're currently working to resurface the A27 westbound between the Long Lane junction and the Fontwell East Roundabout. 

    ******Update 22 February: Our work is cancelled tonight due to the rain.******

    On Monday 19 February, we'll move to the single lanes section, with the A27 fully closed in both directions between Long Lane and the Ford Roundabout. This section will take up to two weeks to complete, with the road closed weeknights between 8pm and 6am.

    A signed diversion will be in place via the A29 and A284.

    Due to unsuitable weather during our programme, we'll need to return to some sections at a later date to complete our work. We'll provide more information here.

    Accessing your property during our work

    We’re carrying out our work in short sections, to maintain access to homes and businesses on the A27.

    Please follow signs for access, or speak to the site team, as the direction you need to approach from may change as we progress. We’ll be posting details of where we’re working, including information about access here.

    For any properties within the working area, an escort will be provided, please approach the closure point. There could be a short wait while we make it safe for you to pass.

We’ll carry out our work in phases starting from the evening of Monday 15 January. It will take us eight weeks.
