Near Chichester the Goodwood Festival of Speed starts today and there are multiple road closures in the area. Traffic for the event is forming on the A27 westbound and A284 northbound towards the lights at Arundel and the A27 eastbound towards the Fishbourne roundabout.

On the A27 eastbound near Chichester there is queuing traffic from the Whyke roundabout to the Bognor Bridge roundabout.

The A272 is closed in both directions due to earlier incident between Crimbourne Lane in Petworth and Fittleworth Road in Billinghurst.

The A272 at Strood Green west of Wisborough Green Road remains closed both ways following an overnight incident.

Southern Rail says there is a fault with the signalling system between Barnham and Bognor Regis and services are currently unable to run to and from Bognor Regis as a result.

A spokesperson for Southern Rail said, “Local engineers are due on site from 8am, from here we will have a better understanding of this points failure. Services will terminate and start back at Littlehampton/Chichester where possible, so we do advise you to check journey planners before departing.”
