A single lane on the A29 has just reopened after a landslide closed a section of the road just days after Christmas.

Work to install giant granite blocks either side of the carriageway near Pulborough began only last week – almost four months after mounds of earth tumbled into the road on December 28 last year.

But traffic is once again flowing on the A29 after it reopened this morning.

A statement from West Sussex County Council read: “The A29 in Pulborough is now partially re-opened, with all vehicular traffic permitted to travel in both directions.

“Two-way traffic signals to control the flow direction are situated before the narrowing created by the concrete blocks and will be manned throughout the day.”

Repairs were initially due to be completed within two weeks of the landslide.
