A27 improvements set to begin

IMPROVEMENT works to the A27 will start in Worthing between Clapham and Offington Corner on Monday.

Following on from work to roadside lighting in November, the road will be resurfaced and drainage upgraded.

On Monday, January 13, the first stage of resurfacing work will take place between Lyons Way and the Grove Lodge roundabout. The resurfacing work will continue in two further stages between Grove Lodge roundabout and Offington Corner and Offington Corner to Cote Street.

Drainage improvements will take place between Clapham and Offington Corner roundabout, when resurfacing work is not being carried out.

The improvements are planned to be completed in March. Work will take place between 7.30am and 5pm with overnight closures in place between 8pm and 6am.

Anita Waterton, Highways Agency project sponsor said she would like to thank road users for their co-operation.

She added the work had been planned to minimise disruption and would take place in off-peak hours and overnight where diversions will be in place.
