A minor incident has caused major traffic jams in and around Brighton and Hove during the rush-hour this morning (Wednesday 21 September).
A breakdown on the A27 Brighton bypass on the stretch between Brighton and Stanmer on the eastbound side of the road is to blame for the queues.
The tailback stretched as far back as the Portslade to Hangleton section at one point, while drivers slowing down on the westbound side led to a queue back past Falmer.
Drivers trying to join the A27 were also affected. On the A23 traffic queued from Preston Park heading north and Pyecombe coming south.
Similarly, congestion clogged up roads leading to the Devil’s Dyke roundabout while the top end of Ditchling Road was also clogged up.
The roadworks at the Seven Dials have also been the source of tailbacks, with temporary traffic lights in use while the roundabout is repaired.
