A29 Church Hill Closure – 9th January 2024

West Sussex County Council have given advanced notice of a planned road closure for the A29, at Church Hill on the 09/01/2024, between 9:30 and 15:30.

They have advised that following the recent geotechnical report, the health of the trees on both sides of the road has been brought into question. As a result of this, WSCC Tree Officers will be undertaking a detailed assessment of the trees, to establish what works are required in the short and medium term to keep this section of highway safe but also to ensure the structural integrity of the embankments are not worsened. These assessments will be undertaken with geotechnical support, with the stability of the embankments in mind.

As well as this tree assessment, WSCC also plan to utilise the road closure to undertake street lighting lamp upgrades, which avoids the need to close the road again.

Once the assessment is completed, WSCC will understand if additional works will be required. Any work required will be communicated via a future update.

If you have any specific questions, please can you direct these to WSCC via and WSCC will endeavour to respond as soon as they can.

A29 Church Hill, Pulborough Closure


Hard work continues to find solutions following A29 Pulborough landslide

Highways teams continue their hard work to find solutions to the complex situation following the A29 Pulborough landslide, when an embankment collapsed.

Every effort is being made to ensure the stretch of the A29 impacted by the collapse (on December 28, 2022) is safe so it can be re-opened as soon as possible.

A West Sussex County Council spokesperson said: “Our Highways teams continue to work hard to progress a solution so that this stretch of the A29 at Pulborough can be reopened as soon as possible.

“The landslide occurred at the narrowest part of the A29, where both sides are flanked by steep embankments. Safety is always our top priority and geotechnical experts have assessed the embankments along this section of the A29 and advised it is not safe to reopen the road to vehicles and pedestrians.

“We cannot currently advise on timescales for reopening as the assessments, investigations and solutions are complex and involve our continuing dialog with the landowners involved.

“Meanwhile, we have improved the diversion route signage, including electronic signs at key locations, and would reiterate our appeal to road users to please use the signed diversion route and take heed of the “road closed” signs and barriers which are there for everyone’s safety.”
