MOTORISTS have been stuck in heavy traffic along the A23 due to continuing roadworks.

Temporary traffic signals are in place due to construction work at the A23 Patcham By-Pass at Old London Road, causing significant delays to people travelling to and from Brighton.

According to The AA, delays are stretching as far as Preston Park.
