A number of them are not due to end until early next year.

Horsham motorist Susie Marshall said: “Roadworks all around Horsham are an absolute nightmare at the moment, you literally cannot get out of any major road in Horsham without encountering them. On Sunday I spent nearly 20 minutes just sitting in traffic trying to go under the Sun Alliance bridge.”
