The closures are part of the work by Highways England to improve safety along sections of the A27, and there will be a clearly signed diversion in place along Long Furlong and the A24.

The overnight closures are in addition to the 24-hour lane closures in both directions between Cote Street, Worthing, and Dover Lane, Angmering.

Planned new and ongoing road improvements could be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

For the safety of road workers and all road users, Highways England is working to reduce the risks of working on the roads and has provided guidance for drivers when approaching roadworks:

• Keep within the speed limit – it is there for your safety.

• Get into the correct lane in good time – don’t keep switching.

• Concentrate on the road ahead, not the roadworks.

• Be alert for works’ traffic leaving or entering roadworks.

• Keep a safe distance – there could be queues in front.

• Observe all signs – they are there to help you.

• And be alert for road workers, the roads are their workplace.
