Project information

A27 maintenance work

Here's the latest information about maintenance work taking place on the A27:

Grove Lodge to Lancing resurfacing - February to May 2023

We’re resurfacing and repairing between Sompting and Lancing. This will help keep the road safe and improve journeys, it also means there'll be fewer unplanned closures.

Our work will be carried out overnight between 8pm and 6am, Monday to Friday only, when there is less traffic on the road, from Monday 6 February, until end of May 2023.

To keep everyone safe and allow us to complete as much work as possible, the road will be closed in phases between Grove Lodge and Lancing Manor roundabouts.

For more information, visit our project webpage.

We're building a new roundabout on the A27 east of Lancing to give access to the New Monks Farm development and provide better links to Brighton City Airport.

Work is expected to last until Autumn 2023 and will be carried out in stages to keep traffic moving and disruption to a minimum.

For the latest closure information, please visit our project webpage.
