Junctions related to the A273

Pyecombe Interchange is a complicated junction due to the terrain, railway and village. The Junction nowadays is made up of the Northern junction and the southern junction, together they provide full access. The Southern one has on traffic for southbound and off traffic for northbound, while the northern one has full all access but southbound on. In additional the petrol station between them has southbound on and on traffic which can also have through traffic. So plenty of options.


Pre 1970s

The A23 is a single carriageway which bends around the Downs and has the village of Pyecombe to the North, Pyecombe is split in two different hamlets about 500 meters apart along the A23. The B2036 terminates on the A23 from the North. In the Eastern Pyecombe, which is just West of the B2036 two local roads join the A23 at T-Junctions on the northern side. At the smaller Western Pyecombe there is just one road, that heads North from the A23.


B2036 is now the A273, route and junction remains the same.


Parts of the A23 are dual carriageway. These parts being by the Western Pyecombe for a 2KM stretch heading West and a small section by the end of the A273.


During the 1980s major realignment and junction alterations took place to accommodate making the entire of the A23 from the new A27 to the M23 a dual carriageway. At the southern junction the A23 becomes D3, while the rest of this area is D2. The original A23 carriageway became part of the A273 spur, connecting the A273 to the northern junction, past the northern junction it becomes a residential road as it enters the Western Pyecombe village. On the northern junction two new slip roads were made for northern connections, these are connected via a fly over, this also provides access to a few farms and properties. The southern junction is for southern connections only, the A273 joins directly onto the A23, taking or giving the 1st Lane depending on the direction of travel. The exit of the northbound goes under the A23 before reconnecting with the other carriageway of the A273. Access to West Pyecombe is via the A273 spur or the A273, there is also a petrol station on the A273 Spur. The petrol station also has full southbound access, allowing you to join the A23 from Pyecombe without crossing the fast and busy A273 northbound as the A273 and A273 Spur has a T-Junction at street level.
