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.”

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 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.
