**edit - this work has now been postponed due to the current weather, and falling temperatures - we will advice the new dates when we become aware of them**

The Carfax is due to be closed to traffic for 12 days for essential road repairs.

The Carfax in Horsham town centre will be closed to all traffic under 24-hour closures for 12 days in January for essential road repair work. 

The existing carriageway surface has become very uneven throughout from heavy goods vehicle movements. Subject to unforeseen factors, such as severe weather, the worst-affected areas will be repaired between 8 January and 20 January, 2024. 

A West Sussex County Council spokesperson said: “The closure to traffic is required to ensure the safety of both the public and workforce and to allow the materials to set/harden. Pedestrian access will be maintained and shops and businesses will be able to open as normal. 

“Our contractor will be liaising with businesses to ensure deliveries can still take place, although timings will be dependent on the progress of the works. 

“We apologise for any inconvenience and hope to complete the works as soon as reasonably practical.”
