M23 Junctions 8 to 10 Resurfacing

Message from Highways England:

We’ll shortly be carrying out work to resurface the M23 in both directions, between junctions 8 and 10, to ensure the network remains in a safe condition for our customers. Work will also include renewal of road markings and road studs, and applying anti-skid material where necessary.

For the safety of our workforce and customers, we’ll need to close the M23 overnight from 8pm to 5am (Monday to Friday nights only), as follows:

  • Monday 7 June to Wednesday 30 June – closure of the southbound carriageway between junction 8 (M25) and junction 10 (Crawley Interchange
  • Monday 5 July to Tuesday 27 July – closure of the northbound carriageway between junction 10 (Crawley Interchange) and junction 8 (M25)


  • Traffic wishing to travel south down the M23 towards Gatwick, will be diverted along to junction 6 of the M25 (Godstone), south down the A22 to Felbridge, then west along the A264 Copthorne Road to join the M23 at junction 10.
  • Traffic for Gatwick Airport will use the same diversion route as above, then from junction 10 of the M23, travel west along the A2011, then north on A23 London Road towards the airport.
  • Traffic travelling north will follow the same diversion route for Gatwick Airport and the diversion route for the M23 and M25 but in reverse.

Access will be maintained for emergency service vehicles on blue light calls only. All drivers will need to adhere to any site reduced speed limits when passing our workforce.

Please note that these works are subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. We’ll advertise the closures on yellow signs placed in advance alongside the M23, and on our South-East Twitter page (@HighwaysSEAST)

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption you may experience during this work.
