Route outline (key)
B2223 Broadwater - East Worthing
The B2223 meets the A259

The B2223 connects two of Worthing's major roads by way of East Worthing railway station, and also provides access to a couple of local industrial estates. Originally unclassified, the road dates to the late 1930s or early 1940s.

Starting on the A24 Broadwater Road at a set of traffic lights, the route first heads eastward along Sompting Avenue, at the end of which there is an impressively large roundabout (junction with Sompting Road, which leads to the A27). Greater plans were clearly once afoot for Sompting Road – still evident in its initial short section of dualling – hence the size of this roundabout. Sompting Avenue was only built in the 1950s; before this the road ran along Broadwater Street East, which also meets this roundabout.

From here, the B2223 continues southeastward, reaching a further set of lights at the junction with Dominion Way before turning south. After crossing over the railway line by East Worthing station, the route continues as Ham Road. There is a small roundabout at Pages Corner (junction with Pages Lane) and then a light-controlled crossing of the busy Brougham Road / Lyndhurst Road.

At this point most traffic from the southbound B2223 turns left to reach the A259 (Brighton Road) via Brougham Road, but the B2223 continues south for a couple of blocks more to meet the A259 at a "give way" T-junction that again looks as if it was designed for something more important.
