Buckbarn Crossroads, also known as Buck Barn is a crossroads between the A24 and A272. The A24 heads north to south as a dual carriageway while the A272 heads east to west on a single carriageway which has been offset. People typically are always in the wrong lane due to there being three lanes in every direction on top of each other due to it being traffic light controlled. In the late 1990s and early 2000s there were plans of putting a GSJ here, however in 2011 this was declined. Despite it being on two primary routes, the lights tend to not cause too much congestion.

The future of the junction is unclear for what will happen to the crossroads. Some plans suggest that it will become a GSJ, although the Horsham District Transport Study (2021) suggest for the junction to become a through-about hamburger junction, however with some additional dedicated bus priority infrastructure.

There is a plan for a new town south east of these crossroads, although information around this is still unclear but improvements to the A24 and A272 would be carried out including grade separation for the Buckbarn Crossroads.


Buckbarn has got a services area where there is a McDonalds and petrol station. They entered/exited from the western side of the A272 and there is also an entrance from the A24 northbound.
