A27, C13

Sussex Pad Junction Marks the Western end of the Shoreham bypass. It is the first At-Grade junction for 13 Miles. It is fully traffic light controlled with the A27 D2 heading east to west, the C13 heading north and the old route of the A27 heading south east which provides access to the airport (The only public access with no height restriction) and a business area.
This junction is also the site of high profile airshow disaster where 11 people died when a hawker hunter crashed mid maneuver onto the junction.
This was first constructed in 1970 with the new viaduct, it is unclear when it became a controlled junction.


The current traffic light controlled crossroads is soon to be replaced by a roundabout just west along the A27. This is part of construction of a new a new IKEA and residential area. The current "old shoreham road" will be diverted onto this new development, while the C13 will become a LILO junction onto the eastbound carriageway of the A27.
