Access considerations

We will be providing temporary traffic management throughout the project to maintain two-way passage on the A27 plus access and egress for Brighton City Airport, the new Withy Patch Gypsies’ and Travellers’ site and the New Monks Farm development site.

Our objective is to maintain local access to and from the A27 with disruption kept to a minimum as far as practicable. We also seek to maintain the existing vehicle access and egress arrangements for Mash Barn Lane, Hoe Court, Coombes Road, Old Shoreham Road, Manor Close and Manor Way. Pedestrian and cycling access will remain throughout the works (except for short periods when we may temporarily close the footway and cycleway to safeguard users) although the route may be redirected at times with clear signage. Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.

The Lorry Stop layby is now only accessible to construction traffic for the duration of the project but will re-open on completion following demobilisation.

We are, of course, aware of the other National Highways improvement on the A27. Our programme has been engineered to take these road closures into account and to avoid any escalation of disruption. We will continue to review the National Highways programme in tandem with ours through 2023.
