In recent years the nearside lane of the A24 southbound at Mickleham has been hatched out and a 50mph limit introduced. The nortbound carriageway is at far right but retains two lanes.

Looking SW at the junction of old and new. Is this centre strip part of the original S2 alignment?

Looking north. The s/bnd side is reduced to D1 all the way from the Leatherhead bypass to a point just after the old road junction.

I'd heard stories of a giant chicken roaming around Dorking. Yeah right. This is from the A24 crossing the A25, heading north. Hey, what's that over there!

Looking south at the Box Hill rbt. Road on left is named Old London Road. A panel of experts think this may have been the old road to London.

The same rbt. The 2 n/bnd lanes are freeflow past the rbt meaning effectively, the rbt doesn't exist in that direction. Another example of fine 1960's roundabout design. (or 50's perhaps)

Looking south towards the Box Hill rbt. Slip rd into Ryka's Cafe, a major bikers hangout on Sundays, 500-1000 visitors being commonplace. Not mentioned on the most dangerous roads however. Note lovely central hedge, a common feature on old dual c/ways from the 30's to the 60's. Could do with pruning though.

A24/A27 Multiplex Worthing

Welcome to the wonderful A27 in Worthing, a road standard most would be envious of.... ;) Wonderful lighting from geared MA60s here making these metal columns sag under the strain. I expect these will remain until Worthing gets its bypass which one day it will...

This is taken looking diagonally opposite the entrance to the Underground station. The A217 and the A24 cross here. The cyclist, who is on the (blue) Cycling Superhighway (pause for sardonic laughter), will not be pleased to find his way blocked further along Tooting High Street by a large number of parked vehicles.

Goar Cottages, Findon Valley - Geograph - 3558119.jpg
Goar Cottages, Findon Valley A pair of 18th century flint walled cottages that stand on the corner of Findon Road and Bost Hill and originally used as the village workhouse. Until the 1930s they were virtually the only buildings on the road between Worthing and Findon before being joined by 3551867 in 1823 and eventually becoming engulfed by the newly built suburb of Findon Valley during the 20th century.
Findon By-Pass - Geograph - 3501256.jpg
Findon By-Pass Built in 1938 to take motor traffic away from the village's narrow lanes. This section actually uses the course of the old High Street and looks towards the junction s with Cross lane and Nepcote.

Washington Roundabout - Geograph - 3486755.jpg
Washington Roundabout Opened in 1968 along with the village's bypass on the site of a former 19th century brickworks. In the foreground is the junction with Sandhill Lane which was the former road junction between the A24 and A283 heading west to Storrington. The long line of traffic trying to access the A24 has just left an event at Wiston House which happened over the bank holiday weekend.

Ashington Junction - Geograph - 3391122.jpg
Ashington Junction The Ashington By-Pass meets the B2133 and the main entrance and exit for the village. The by-pass was opened in 1994 to replace the old single carriageway that ran through the village.
Worthing Road - Geograph - 5130110.jpg
Worthing Road The current road junction with the A24 north of Dial Post. Over the centuries the routes have changed here, by 1724 a lane running north then eastwards to Rookcross Farm was the only route and followed the line of trees on the far side of the current dual carriageway. This lane became part of the 1802 Horsham-Worthing turnpike but was shortened in 1823 when a new route, heading north to the left, cut out the loop via Rookcross Lane by preceding straight to Bay Bridge. This became the A24 in the 20th century which became progressively busier and was turned into a dual carriageway north of this point in the mid 1960s. Another two decades of the hamlet of Dial Post being choked by traffic was ended in the late 1980s when the hamlet was bypassed reducing the former route to an access road.
Worthing Road - Geograph - 5047617.jpg
Worthing Road A view of the section between the entrance to the Knepp Estate and the junction with the B2135. The road is of some antiquity as the parish boundary between West Grinstead and Shipley follow it as far as the junction with Bar Lane to the north. The line here roughly follows the central reservation with the northbound lanes in the parish of Shipley and the southbound in that of West Grinstead. The road was widened here in the mid 1960s. Fairly quiet at 7am on a Saturday morning but has a reputation for having a high number of accidents due to the large number of minor junctions throughout its length.
Road Junction, The Bar - Geograph - 5077889.jpg
Road Junction, The Bar North of the Buckbarn Crossroads the two carriageways comprising the A24 north and south bound split into two sections. The junction with Bar Lane at The Bar requires those wishing to go north to cross the south bound lanes then continue a little to the west.
