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.
