Bury Hill remains closed after fatal crash

The A29 remains closed today (Thursday) following a fatal three car collision at Bury Hill yesterday evening (May 4).

The road surface was so badly damaged with oil, diesel and petrol that it needed to be resurfaced.

The work to resurface the road, paint new white lines and replace cat’s eyes is expected to take a few days. At this stage it is expected that the road will remain closed until Sunday (May 8).

Motorists are advised to follow the following diversion routes:

Southbound traffic - divert onto A283 at Pulborough and then onto A24 at Washington.

Northbound traffic - A27 to A280 and then A24.

The B2139 (Storrington - Whiteways) is not suitable as a diversionary route for HGV traffic because of the restricted height at the Houghton railway bridge.
