Progress report

From 6 January we will be replacing the steel barrier that runs between Ashcombe and Southerham roundabouts on the A27.

What’s next?

There will be a series of full closures and lane closures on the main carriageway of the A27 between the Ashcombe and Southerham roundabouts to carry out this work. The closure details are as follows:

  • Full closure of the east-bound carriageway between Ashcombe and Southerham roundabouts on Monday 6 January 2020 to Friday 10 January 2020, overnight from 8pm to 6am
  • Two narrow lanes will be activated on the east-bound carriageway between Ashcombe and Southerham roundabouts on Tuesday 7 January 2020 to Sunday 26 April 2020, these will be in force throughout the day and night
  • Closure of lane 1 of the west-bound carriageway between Ashcombe and Southerham roundabouts in order to install speed restriction signage on Monday 6 January 2020, overnight from 8pm to 6am
  • Closure of lane 2 of the west-bound carriageway between Ashcombe and Southerham roundabouts on Tuesday 7 January 2020 to Sunday 26 April 2020. This will take effect from Monday 6 January at 8pm until Monday 27 April at 6am and will take effect from 8pm to 6am throughout the timescale indicated
  • Full closure of the west-bound carriageway between Ashcombe and Southerham roundabouts. These will take place periodically overnight from 8pm until 6am during the overall works period

Dates and times are subject to change. Please check the Roadworks tab below for more information.

Why we need this scheme

The existing barrier is corroding so a new one is needed to keep the road as safe as possible and prevent cross-carriageway accidents.
