“We had hoped to be able to keep the junction of Brown Jack Avenue open however, this will not now be possible as there is not enough space for us to be able to work safety.

“Temporary traffic lights will be in use at Gainsborough Lane. 

I regret any inconvenience this will cause.

“We will be installing a safety fence, the same as the one in use between Cophall and Polegate on the junction.

“To do this, we will be closing the A27 between 8pm on Saturday 12 September and 6am on Monday 14 September. A signed diversion will be in place. 

“We will try to do any noisy work before 11pm. We are sorry for the inevitable disruption.
