A West Sussex Highways spokesperson said: “Most businesses have deliveries via a back-access route, so we are not anticipating any significant issues.

“Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times, although there will be safety barriers where work is taking place, for 
the protection of the public and workforce.

“We apologise in advance but these are essential works and we will do all we can to minimise any inconvenience.”
