Road users are set to benefit from less bumpy journeys on the A23 south of Warninglid after the start of resurfacing work on Monday (10 February).

Sections of the carriageway will be resurfaced to provide drivers with smoother journeys south of the on-going A23 widening project.

The work will involve overnight carriageway closures and is due to be completed, weather permitting, on the night of Sunday 16 February.

Chris Bacon, Highways Agency Project Manager said: “We will be resurfacing sections of the carriageway to the south of Warninglid to provide drivers with smoother journeys on this busy route.

“We have planned the work to take place overnight, when we know traffic flows are lowest, to minimise disruption.”

The work will be carried out overnight, between 8pm and 6am.

The carriageways will be closed in separate phases between Pease Pottage (M23) and Bolney (A272) as follows:

• Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 February: southbound carriageway

• Wednesday 12, Thursday 13 and Friday 14 February: northbound carriageway

• Saturday 15 February: southbound carriageway

A fully signed diversion will be in place via the A264, A24 and A272.

The improvement work is taking place just south of the Highways Agency’s ongoing A23 Handcross to Warninglid Widening the A23.
