Commuters experienced severe delays on the A27 due to emergency repairs after a collision.

A lane and exit slip-road were closed this morning for emergency bridge repairs on the A27 westbound at the A283 Shoreham flyover.

On Sunday, the A27 saw two crashes which caused nearly four miles of queues and delays of more than an hour.

One crash caused damage to a bridge parapet after a driver hit the central reservation, closing the A27 westbound between the A283 and A2025.

Emergency work to repair the bridge continued today, leading to “severe delays” of up to 25 minutes on A27 Old Shoreham Road westbound.

The eastbound carriageway also saw delays of up to 12 minutes.

The heavy traffic continued until approximately 11.30am.

Another crash on the A27 near the Southwick tunnel on Sunday saw a three-vehicle crash.

Firefighters were called to the scene of the crash at about 1pm, which involved two cars and a motorbike.

A fire service spokeswoman said: “Upon arrival firefighters carried out first aid before leaving a casualty in the care of crews from South East Coast Ambulance Service.”

It was a bleak weekend on the road as a 34-year-old motorcyclist from Eastbourne and a Porsche driver were killed in the east of the county.
