You are right to report that motorists face chaos and delays on the A27 for the next 14 weeks but the contractors aren’t helping (Herald, October 4). On the second day of the works at around noon, the nearside lane going westbound was coned off from east of the Adur crossing to the Lancing Manor roundabout. There were no works going on, no equipment, nothing; an empty lane all the way. Eastbound there was a similar situation, a mile or so of the nearside lane coned off and the only work going on was near the Sussex Pad occupying about 50 metres in all.
