Motorists will experience a safer drive along the A24 near the Surrey border in future.
West Sussex Highways is making a series of improvements to assist motorists at the A24 Shiremark Bends (south of Shiremark Farm).
- New chevrons and signs to highlight bends in the road;
- New verge markers; and
- Cutting back vegetation to make it easier to see.
Work is due to start on Monday, March 6 and is expected to last for five days.
Engineers will work overnight between 8pm and 6am.
An overnight northbound lane closure will be in place throughout the works to keep the public and workforce safe.
A signed diversion route will be in place.
West Sussex County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, Bob Lanzer, said: “Putting in these improvements will highlight the shape of the road to motorists more clearly.
“It will make road users feel safer on this stretch of road.
“We ask anyone travelling overnight here to bear in mind the diversion route before setting out on their journey.”
The scheme costs £28,000.
The diversion route follows:
- A24 Horsham Road,
- A24 Dorking Road,
- A24 Horsham bypass,
- A24 Slip to A264 Broadbridge Heath bypass,
- A281 Billingshurst Road,
- A281 Broadbridge Heath bypass,
- A281 Guildford Road,
- A29 Bognor Road,
- Across county boundary on A29 to re-join A24 Dorking Road.
