The works, which started on Monday (June 28), are expected to finish on Friday (July 2).

Two-way traffic lights have been installed at the site while the works are carried out.

On Monday morning, one social media user said there were tailbacks as far as Asda in Selsey with reports of heavy traffic building up heading towards Selsey during rush hour this evening.

Just after 5pm, the AA’s traffic report said there were ‘severe delays’ and showed slow traffic from as far back as the junction with Lockgate Road in Sidlesham to Ferry Corner.

A West Sussex County Council spokesperson said: “These are developer’s road widening works and unfortunately one of the temporary traffic lights developed a fault, causing problems on site. The contractor involved has been asked to ensure the manned lights are prioritised according to traffic demand – to try to avoid long tailbacks.”
