Delays warning while busy Hove junction is improved

Drivers are warned to expect delays as the city council undertakes 12 weeks of essential safety works to a busy junction on Hove’s Old Shoreham Road, from 15 January.

The works will affect the junction of the Old Shoreham Road, Sackville Road and Nevill Road, near the Hove Park Tavern pub.

New-technology signals will be installed, aimed at improving traffic flows. To enhance safety, pedestrian crossing facilities will be upgraded, and footways resurfaced.  This will include adding push-button crossings for Nevill and Sackville Roads.

Temporary traffic lights will be in place during the works. While the junction will remain open throughout, north and southbound traffic will not be permitted to turn right into Old Shoreham Road. Access to all nearby properties will be maintained. 

A council spokesperson said:  “Unfortunately there will be delays to traffic during the project and we apologise in advance for the inconvenience.  Drivers are advised to find another route if they can.  This project is part of the council’s long-term plans to improve traffic flows and make sure walking is more pleasant and safe.”
