New road surface for busy Worthing junction


Release date: 8 March 2017

Road users can expect a safer and smoother road surface at a busy junction in Worthing.

West Sussex Highways is resurfacing the Brighton Road and Ham Road junction.


Engineers will replace the existing road surface, which is cracking and deteriorating, with a fresh new one.


They will renew the road markings once resurfacing is completed.


Work starts on Thursday, March 9 and will be completed overnight for two nights.


West Sussex Highways is working at night to avoid disrupting the junction, bus routes and journeys to Worthing Hospital.


The road will be closed both nights while work takes place.


West Sussex County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, Bob Lanzer, said: “All road users will benefit from this repair.


“The current road surface needs replacing.


“This will smooth out the road and make it quieter when vehicles drive over it.

“Every effort will be made to minimise noise affecting nearby residents.


“The noisier operations are planned to take place in the earlier part of the evening.”


The work costs about £62,000.
