|Roundabout Interchange with Traffic Lights|
|M23, A23, A264, C49 (West Sussex), (B2114)|
A standard roundabout interchange which has been partially signalised. The route from A23 northbound to A264 is a freeflowing left turn that avoids the roundabout or any traffic lights. The roundabout itself is two lanes wide throughout, though the slip roads off the main M23/A23 are three lanes wide. There is no hard shoulder northbound through the junction.
Before the coming of the M23, the A23 ran through what is now the north-west curve of the roundabout without any sort of junction. This junction is original to the M23, though the A264 came later. Originally there was a lane drop through the junction, as the A23 south of here was only two lanes while the M23 was three.
The third lane was added when the A23 to the south was widened in the 1990s, but has left the northbound onslip with a short merge with no hard shoulder.
The junction was partially signalised in 2008. Both slip roads off the main route (M23 to the north and A23 to the south) terminated on the roundabout with traffic signals, with traffic signals on the roundabout
Brighton road to the south (C49) will be dualled to a new roundabout. This new roundabout will replace the current T-junction entrance to the services, it will also provide access to a new housing development directly to the east. This dual- carriageway section is only to be less than 175 metres.
