THE eastbound carriageway of the A27 remains flooded and is unlikely to open until at least 6pm.

The stretch between the A285 junction and the A29 junction at Fontwell is closed due to flooding.

Earlier today (January 17), the Highways Agency said it hoped the road would be reopened at 5pm, however it remains closed and flooded, as the picture above taken at 4.45pm demonstrates.

Current estimates are that it should be open by 6pm, according to the Highways Agency.
