Part of the A27 will be closed for weeks for resurfacing works.

The A road will be shut overnight on sections between Crossbush and Poling near Arundel from Monday, April 29, to Friday, May 17.

National Highways said resurfacing and improvements will be carried out to maintain safety and improve the journey for road users and will prevent the need for unplanned closures. 

Work will be carried out in phases on weeknights between 8pm and 6am.

Diversion will be in place via A280, A259 and A284. 

During the day the road will be open as usual. 

This work could change in case of adverse weather conditions.

There will be access throughout for people who live on the A27.

During the eastbound closures, residents are told to join the westbound A27 and use the crossovers to access properties east of Blakehurst Lane. 

During the westbound and full closures, access to properties on the A27 between the Clapham junction and Poling Street will be maintained from Clapham. The Poling Street crossover will be closed, so to access properties between Poling Street and Crossbush, please use Poling Street.

The full details of the works are:

  • Monday, April 29 to Thursday May 2 - the A27 eastbound will be closed between Crossbush (A284 junction) and Clapham (A280 junction) from 8pm to 6am each night
  • Friday, May 3 to Friday, May 10 - the A27 westbound between Clapham and Crossbush will be closed weeknights from 8pm to 6am each night.
