The UK Highways Agency has announced that it will begin resurfacing work on the A27 in Sussex on 14 July.

The project is part of the UK Government’s commitment to invest in road infrastructure, in order to ensure smoother and safer journeys.

"We have planned the work to minimise disruption."

Road sections near Patcham, Lancing and Southwick will be resurfaced as part of the project, which will lead to an improved journey quality for all drivers.

Highways Agency project sponsor Anita Waterton said: "We will need to close parts of the A27 to complete the work and we have planned the work to minimise disruption by resurfacing overnight, when traffic flows are lowest, and with a clearly signed diversion in place so that drivers can continue their journeys."

The agency has also announced that it will start work to resurface a part of the A34 near Didcot in Oxfordshire on 16 July.

It is due to be completed on 30 July.
