One lane has been reopened following a collapse in a major seafront road.
The A259 Kingsway, Brighton, eastbound has been opened to “light vehicles”.
However, police are still directing lorries and larger vehicles via the B2185 Grand Avenue and The Drive, Hove, onto the A270 Old Shoreham Road.
Westbound traffic is still being diverted north at the Aquarium roundabout/Palace Pier to follow the A23 London Road to join the A270 New England Road and Old Shoreham Road.
There is still heavy congestion in the surrounding roads.
Earlier this morning, around 8am, part of the road collapsed.
Workmen had been fixing a fire exit at the Fortune of War pub, situated below the road.
