|We have received the following message about the M23, from Kier, the main Contractors:
Dear Stakeholders, Customers and Communities,
It gives me great pleasure to announce that as of Wednesday 16 September, the M23 is open for traffic with the 70mph national speed limit reinstated and gantry technology in place.
We have been on your network for the past two and a half years, and during that time, have undertaken heavy civils work to turn 3 lanes on the M23 into an all lane running, 4 lane motorway, to help ease congestion and make journeys better for the 180,000 motorists using this stretch of road daily.
We would like to thank you for your patience during this time, as we appreciate that on occasions we would have disturbed you, caused congestion on diversion routes and generally disrupted your activities.
Your help and support has been much appreciated and we are most grateful.
We still have some work to complete the project such as fencing, re-planting and snagging, but hope to keep any further closures to a minimum.
We will continue to send out our weekly bulletins until the end of November 2020.
Keep safe and well and thank you again from all the SMP M23 team.
Other road works and traffic information
We are periodically asked why we do not detail other road works and traffic issues across Sussex. The simple answer is that there are too many! To obtain the latest information we recommend that you refer to the Highways England website https://highwaysengland.co.uk/traffic/ , where you can find details of traffic conditions, roadworks and other information across England.
