Junctions related to the A2300

Hickstead junction marks the end of three running lanes since the M25 junction on the M23. Southbound lane 1 leaves the A23 and Northbound lane 1 joins from the on-slip. It primarily provides access to the Burgess Hill via the recently built A2300.


Pre 1930

The A23 crosses Hickstead Lane / Jobs Lane at the Hickstead Crossroads.


It was only in the 80s that the A23 was dualed at Hickstead. This involved realigning the road to the East of the old A23. It was built as a D3 to the north and D2 to the south. The old A23 would become a very long two way slip road due to properties being spaced along it, to the north it is 1.2KM and to the south it is 400 meters. The junction was formed as a dumbbell with A new service station was built on the Eastern side.


In 1997 a new road was opened, the A2300, this is a direct connection to the new Burgess Hill Ring Road A273. It replaces the arm of the Eastern roundabout that used to go onto Job's Lane.


During the Northern Arc housing project there is upgrades to the A2300, this includes an enlarged roundabout on the Eastern side of the dumbbell to support the dualing of the A2300. The western roundabout would become a teardrop, with the potential of being a traffic light controlled teardrop.


Despite its close proximity to Bolney Interchange it is likely that it would remain open in the event that the A23 is upgraded to a Motorway, however the western side of the dumbbell would have to be upgraded as well as it is a small roundabout.
