Roadworks on the A24 is causing traffic chaos for the second day running this morning (Wednesday November 13).

There is disruption northbound between A280 Long Furlong and A283 The Pike.

Queueing traffic has been reported on the A24 northbound between Findon Roundabout and Washington.

UK Power Networks is repairing an underground cable and the work is expected to be finished on Friday November 15.

A spokesperson said: “UK Power Networks would like to apologise for the delays on the A24 at Washington. We recognise the inconvenience our work has caused but serious safety concerns meant we had to have particularly robust traffic management in place.

“Our engineers have completed a repair to an underground high voltage cable to maintain reliable power supplies to customers in the area, and our reinstatement work will finish this afternoon.

“In order to minimise disruption as much as possible, we agreed to share the traffic management with another utility firm and they will remove the traffic management once their work has been completed.”
