Bolney Park Farm Junction is a rather unusual junction with nowadays with incomplete access and slip roads all over the place. It doesn't provide and any Southbound on slip road, however it is possible by going to the Bolney interchange to the south.

History

Pre 1930s

The A23 was a single carriageway. Just North of the 37 Mile Marker Jeremy's Lane joined the A23 from the West, 400 Meteres to the south Broxmead Lane joined from the East in a large triangle. Multiple farms, parks and houses also had their access off of the A23

1930s

The A23 was Dualed into a D2 road. Jeremy's Lane ended with a T Junction with the A23 with access to both carriageways and the same with both forks of Broxmead Lane.

1990s

The whole of the A23 and M23 was getting upgrades to make the route faster and safer, this included realigning the A23 through what is now Bolney Park Farm. The A23 was realigned as a D3 east of the old A23. A single carriageway was retained as a S2 . Where Jeremy's lane previously ended there was is a roundabout, here there is full northbound access with a new off-slip built and the on-slip followed the route of the retained carriageway, this is mostly two way traffic for access to properties along it. To the south the single carriageway follows its route south towards Bolney where there is a T-Junction with Broxmead Lane which has a bridge over the new A23. The other side of the bridge there is another T-junction where a off-slip road ends. There is no on-slip.

Future

This is very unused junction. Its really only used for those leaving Bolney heading North. In the event that the road is upgraded or changed in anyway then it is likely no effort would be put in to retain the access currently here.
