Motorists relieved as planned closure of M23 is postponed



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.”

Cuckfield High Street to close as road works begin

Essential road resurfacing starts soon in Cuckfield High Street and is scheduled to take up to five days.



The current surface is deteriorating and difficult to maintain. The long-lasting replacement will be strong, less vulnerable to potholes and the need for frequent and disruptive small repairs.

The High Street will be resurfaced between Broad Street and London Road and will be closed to through traffic. Approximately 75 metres of Broad Street will also be resurfaced, from its junction with the High Street.

Work is scheduled to start on 22 October, subject to factors such as severe weather, and will take place between 8am and 8pm each day. An earlier phase in the project took place in the spring.

A West Sussex Highways spokesperson said:

“This type of work, in a busy village centre, inevitably causes disruption. However, every effort is being made to try to minimise the impact of the project for local businesses, residents and the wider, travelling public. This is why the works have been scheduled for school half-term week, when traffic volumes are generally lower.”

The High Street will be closed to through traffic, including buses, with a diversion in place via the A272 Cuckfield bypass, B2184 Broad Street/London Lane to re-join the B2036 London Road to the north of the road resurfacing project, and vice-versa.

Pedestrian access will be maintained to homes, shops and businesses.
