Flyover to open a week ahead of schedule

The Hazelwick flyover in Crawley will re-open to motorists a week early on Wednesday May 15.

West Sussex County Council has been repairing the bridge structure since February.
The bridge had worn over time and the full length of the road has been resurfaced giving the flyover another 25 years of life.
The refurbishment, which cost about £720,000, was carried out by the county council’s contractor Balfour Beatty, and sub-contractor Freyssinet.
Geoff Lowry, West Sussex County Council’s head of Highways and Transport, said: “We are delighted to announce that this refurbishment work has finished early.
“When we arrived on site, we took the decision to resurface the entire length of the carriageway rather than just a section of it.
“By doing this now, it means we won’t have to disrupt traffic again by returning to resurface the road in a couple of years’ time.”
He added: “We want to take this opportunity to thank motorists for finding alternative routes, which helped alleviate congestion at the Hazelwick roundabout while it was closed.”
