|Route outline (key)|
The A2024 was a largely rural A-road in west Sussex.
The road started on the A259 on the eastern edge of Chichester. It headed east, passing between Tangmere and Oving to reach a short multiplex along the A29 at Westergate. On regaining its number the A2024 ran through Eastergate before continuing on back to the A259 at Climping.
The above route was originally numbered B2144 and gained the A2024 number in 1935. However, during World War II Tangmere Airfield, which was originally sited to the north of the A2024, was extended and severed the road, which was not replaced. When classification caught up with reality, the westernmost section of the A2024 regained the B2144 number, whilst to the east of the airfield the road was diverted to meet the A27 near Crockerhill.
In the 1970s what remained of the A2024 was downgraded to Class II status; it is now numbered B2233.
