An overturned caravan caused tailbacks on the A27 Brighton bypass during the evening rush hour today (Monday 26 September).
The caravan overturned at about 4pm on the eastbound side of the road.
Sussex Police said that the caravan hit the central reservation by the slip road to the A23 northbound at Patcham, blocking the carriageway.
No other vehicles were involved.
Cars were queueing beyond the Devil’s Dyke and Hangleton turnoff and, at times, in King George VI Avenue , known locally as Snaky Hill.
The slip road was due to be reopened at about 6pm.
Some drivers leaving Hove had already had to contend with queues caused by the resurfacing of Sackville Road, with temporary traffic lights in operation.
