Cheals Roundabout in Crawley to reopen for Christmas and New Year

Seems the festive cheer is kicking in. It may only be open fully for the Christmas and New Year but it will be a huge relief to all drivers who have to negotiate the area.



It has been confirmed that all traffic management on the Cheals Roundabout and along Crawley Avenue and Horsham Road will be removed on 22nd Dec ’18.

This means the area will once again be free of any roadworks allowing traffic to flow normally.

This will continue until 6th Jan with the works restarting on the 7th Jan ’19.

In a statement from the contactors they say:

“Great efforts have been made by all to ensure that the traffic management can be taken down so the road can be reopened over the busy festive period.”

However they do say that the temporary footway diversion will remain in place over this time.


“Scams can happen to anyone” says West Sussex Trading Standards

Residents are being encouraged to come forward and report scams this June.



West Sussex Trading Standards is urging the public not to feel embarrassed if they fall victim to a scam.

“Scams can happen to anyone” is the message of this year’s national Scams Awareness Campaign.

Trading Standards officers and Citizens Advice will be attending a range of events across the county, including Crawley, to provide information on scams and to offer tips to avoid falling victim to fraudulent activity. These are taking place on:

•           Tuesday 18 June from 11am to 1pm at Tesco, Jane Murray Way, Burgess Hill
•           Thursday 20 June from 11am to 1pm at Sainsbury’s, Bannister Way, Haywards Heath
•           Thursday 20 June from 9:30am to 1pm at Tesco, Fishbourne Road, Chichester
•           Saturday 22 June from 12 noon to 5pm at Crawley Festival, Memorial Gardens, Crawley
•           Thursday 27 June from 9:30am to 1pm at Tesco, Shripney Road, Bognor Regis

Debbie Kennard, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Safer, Stronger Communities, said:

“Falling victim to a scam can leave people feeling embarrassed and reluctant to come forward. Removing the stigma around scams is vital and I would urge people to come along to these events and talk about their experiences.”

Anyone concerned about scams can get advice from the Citizens Advice consumer helpline on 03454 04 05 06.
