ROADWORKS along the A27 have been cancelled due to strong wind and heavy rain. 

The resurfacing works on the A27 at Pevensey bypass, between the Golden Jubilee and Pevensey roundabouts have been called off, National Highways confirmed.

The agency said the work will restart again at 8pm tomorrow night, if the weather conditions improve.

A spokesman said: “Due to the poor weather forecast, our resurfacing work on the A27 Pevensey bypass between the Golden Jubilee and Pevensey roundabouts will not be going ahead tonight.

“Work will restart again tomorrow night if weather allows.”

It comes as Sussex prepares to batten down the hatches for the arrival of Storm Dudley and Storm Eunice.

Forecasters are warning people to expect strong winds with 60-70 mph gusts possible inland, perhaps even stronger in some places, though the strongest winds and worst-affected areas are uncertain at present.

This system is also expected to bring some heavy rain with it too.

National Highways Head of Road Safety, Jeremy Phillips, said: “We’re encouraging drivers to check the latest weather and travel conditions before setting off on journeys and consider if their journey is necessary and can be delayed until conditions improve.”
