New dates scheduled for essential road repair work at The Carfax in Horsham

Roadworks and sign

The Carfax in Horsham town centre will be closed to all traffic under 24-hour closures for essential road repair work between 29 February and 10 March. These works would have been completed last month but severe weather forced their postponement.

The existing carriageway surface at The Carfax has become very uneven in certain locations from heavy goods vehicle movements. Subject to unforeseen factors, such as further severe weather, the worst-affected areas will be repaired.

A West Sussex County Council spokesperson said: “The closure to traffic is required to ensure the safety of both the public and workforce and to allow the materials to set/harden. Pedestrian access will be maintained and shops and businesses will be able to open as normal.

“We have been liaising with businesses to ensure deliveries can still take place, although timings will be dependent on the progress of the works.

“We apologise for any inconvenience and hope to complete the works as soon as reasonably practical.”
