Information from Highways England

Work will be carried out to remove non-compliant signs and replace them with new signs complying with current sign regulations, along the A27 between Emsworth and Drusilla’s Roundabout.

  • Ring management at roundabouts
  • Lane closures with traffic lights

  • Temporary 2, 3 and 4-way traffic lights
  • Full carriageway closures with diversion
  • Layby closures

Safe pedestrian access will be provided through works areas.
