UPDATES ON SIGNIFICANT PLANNED Road Works: and Emergencies on Motorways. Neighbourhood Watch are pleased to inform you that arrangements have been made for Neighbourhood Watch to be informed of significant planned road works and major emergencies on nearby Motorways. To give you some background, the M23 is currently being upgraded to be a Smart Motorway between junctions 8 – 10. This carries a substantial amount of traffic to and from Sussex including Gatwick Airport, and of course it connects to the M25. If a serious incident affects these roads then road users from far afield are affected and this increases congestion on other roads and routes. This impacts journey times and fuel costs, and can lead to further accidents. We appreciate that some of the recipients of these messages may live some distance from a motorway, so you may be less affected by motorway incidents, but on the other hand you might be planning a long journey!
