A crash during the rush hour shut the A27 Brighton bypass westbound between Hollingbury and Patcham earlier this evening (Monday 29 November).

Drivers faced delays and diversions for over an hour and a half after the crash which happened at about 5pm and which involved a car and a motorbike.

A second crash happened near Hollingbury at about 7pm, shortly after the road had reopened. No one was injured in the crash which involved two vans and a car.

Earlier, Sussex Police said: “Our officers are responding to a collision on the A27 westbound at Patcham this evening.

“The road is currently closed and motorists are advised to seek alternative routes while work to clear the scene continues.”

Highways England said: “Diversion routes have been put in place and police have advised drivers to avoid the area while they work to clear the scene.”

A diversion took drivers off at Hollingbury, down Carden Avenue, then up the A23 London Road to the Patcham roundabout.
