Junctions related to the B2118

Albourne junctions consisted of junctions with the A23 and B2116 where they ran in duplex. The A23 now bypasses these junctions since 1980.

History

pre 1980s

A23 Runs north to South as a Single carriageway. B2116 comes from the West along the top of Albourne and joins the A23 at a T-Junction, it runs along the A23 for 150 Meters before leaving Eastways at a T-Junction towards Hurstpierpoint.

1980s

The A23 was realigned to the East as a D2. The B2116 passes over it on a bridge with no access at all. The old route of the A23 has became the B2118. For connections to and from the south there is the Hurstpierpoint Junction on the southern end of the B2118 and for northern access there is Sayers Common Junction at the northern end of the B2118

Future

In the event that the A23 is upgraded to a Motorway or requires better junctions then there is a possibility that the two half junctions at Sayers Common and Hurstpierpoint would be closed and a new junction created at Albourne. All four corners to the crossing is open fields, perfect for creating a new safe junction while the other two half junctions are restricted by woodland and/or houses.
