M23 Sussex Traffic News - A23 Roadworks, Accidents, Delays

M23 Live Traffic Updates For A23, A27

The M23 motorway runs from south of Hooley in Surrey and finishes in Crawley, Sussex, it's length is 17 miles, but this is only a small part of the story. The M23 is in fact just a modernised part of the iconic London to Brighton road, the A23, forever immortalised as the route of the London to Brighton race.

From a congestion point of view the M23 generally offers pretty good driving conditions, the main problem is at rush hour northbound,where the M23 becomes the A23 at the junction with the M25. The A23 is a very different proposition particulary inside the M25 Other local Justsussex traffic resources include: Sussex road news, M25 Sussex news, flights and Gatwick Airport news, rail information and Sussex weather news.

The A23 effectively runs from Waterloo Bridge to Brighton, the congestion blackspots are many and varied between Central London and Croydon. Then out towards the M23 and usually better driving conditions, past Horley, Gatwick Airport and Crawley before it returns to its A road status. Down past Bolney crossing the A272, past Burgess Hill and Hassocks then on into Brighton. When you hit the beach the A23 is finished!

These are the resources that we have found to be the most useful, particularly when there are M23 Traffic problems and delays (the traffic to these websites rises sharply at such times.
