M23 and A27 roadworks; night-time closures for resurfacing

As we're out on the roads delivering and collecting skips throughout Sussex 6 days a week, we thought we'd let our local community know that there are a couple of very busy roads that will be getting a facelift this week.
Firstly, Highways England has announced that the M23 between junctions 9 and 11 around the Crawley area will be undergoing resurfacing work during the night.
It'll only affect traffic on the northbound carriageway of the M23 heading towards London and will be closed between the hours of 9pm and 6am until Sunday night.
If you're going to use the M23 between these hours then you should be aware that you'll find yourself being diverted onto the A2011.
Secondly, the A27 between Berwick and Wilmington will also be undergoing similar resurfacing work between the hours of 8pm and 6am until Friday and if you're out and about during these hours, you'll be diverted onto the A22 / A26.
This is especially important if you're planning to fly out of Gatwick Airport during this time, so make sure you check the travel news and add a bit of extra time to your journey.
