M23 problems begin as motorway closes all lanes southbound

The chaos of the M23 upgrade is starting right now as Jnc 7-8 closes southbound. Make sure you know what is open and what is closed before you travel.

The M23 problems are starting and tonight they begin with all lanes closed southbound between Jnc 7-8.

Starting at 10pm on the 12th March the first full lane closure will take place overnight until 05:30 on the 13th.

This will continue every night at the same time until the 16th when the schedule of the closures changes slightly to:

Schedule From 23:00 on 16 March 2018 to 06:00 on 17 March 2018
Schedule From 22:00 on 17 March 2018 to 05:30 on 18 March 2018
Schedule From 22:30 on 18 March 2018 to 05:30 on 19 March 2018

Northbound traffic does not escape however particularly for traffic trying to go to and from Gatwick.

On the 14th March the M23 northbound entry slip at junction J9 will close two lanes which when you realise that a slip road only has two lanes means it will be closed between 9pm and 6am on the 15th.

Only a few days later the M23 northbound exit slip at junction J9 (Gatwick) will close on the 18th March from 9pm to 6am on the 19th.

For those travelling into Crawley on the M23 southbound and wishing to use Junction 10 there will be disruption as two lanes are closed on the slip road from the 19th March to 4th April from 9pm to 6am each night. This is likely to cause a large number of diverted traffic through Crawley either via Jnc9 or Jnc 10a.

With many more closures taking place over the next two years it is worth checking ahead of every journey before setting off.

There will be changes to the days some sites are open. Burgess Hill, Chichester, Worthing, and Crawley will open for six days a week during the winter months. Chichester will close on Tuesdays and Burgess Hill, Worthing, and Crawley will close on Thursdays.

Deborah Urquhart, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Environment, said:

“The changes are based around the demand for services at different times of the year.

“Reducing opening hours during the quieter winter allows us to keep sites open for longer in the summer months when demand is at its highest.”
