More of the A27 at Chichester closed

THE A27 eastbound is now closed between the junctions with the A285 Portfield Way, Chichester, and the A29 south, due to flooding.

The road is expected to remain closed throughout Christmas Day.

A local diversion is in place, however, a Highways Agency spokesman said HGVs should use the A259, Bognor Road.

The diversion was updated at 1.45pm today (December 25) after several days of partial closure on the dual carriageway.
