The effect of the Order would be to authorise the phased overnight closure of:-
a) the eastbound carriageway of the A27 between Devil's Dyke Interchange (A2038) and Hollingbury Interchange (Carden Avenue);

b) the southbound carriageway of the A23 between its divergence from the fast link leading to the A27 and Mill Lane Roundabout;

h) Vale Avenue at junction with the westbound carriageway of the A27 spur road.

These measures would be in the interests of road safety while contractors undertake resurfacing, road marking, stud and traffic loop renewal, and all associated works.

The Order would come into force on 15 August 2020 and have a maximum duration of eighteen months, ceasing when the works are complete.
Traffic affected by the closures would be diverted using other junctions on the A23 and A27, and by using the B2117, Devil's Dyke Road, Saddlescombe Road, Preston Drove, Surrenden Road, Braybon Avenue, and Carden Avenue. Access under escort would be maintained to access/leave property.
The diversion in operation would vary according to the closure in force.
