The planned closure of the M23 this weekend has been postponed.
The highways agency made the announcement citing adverse weather conditions, in particular the forecast of heavy rain as the reason.

The planned closure was for a section between Junction 10 and 9 to be closed northbound.
There is planned work for next weekend that will still cause a closure however.
One motorist, Keith from Three Bridges said:
“This is such a relief. I work at the weekends and last week when it was closed it took me over an hour to drive what usually takes 15 minutes. I know the work has to be done, but even delaying it for a week means I don’t have to worry just yet.”
