Highways Agency

Road users are reminded that the northbound A23 entry slip road at Handcross will be closed from Monday 9 September.

The northbound slip roads are being rebuilt to improve safety and provide better access to and from the A23. This is as part of the A23 Handcross to Warninglid major improvement scheme.

The slip road will close in the early hours on Monday 9 September and is due to be re-opened by Christmas.

A fully signed diversion route will be in place to the M23 junction 11 roundabout at Pease Pottage via the B2114.

The northbound exit slip road has been closed since improvement work began there in July. It is due to reopen in February 2014.
