Notice is hereby given that Highways England Company Limited intends to make an Order on the A27 Trunk Road in the County of East Sussex and the Unitary Authority of the City of Brighton and Hove, under Section 14(1)(a) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 because works are proposed to be executed on the road.

a) both carriageways of the A27 between Holmbush Interchange (A270) and Devil's Dyke Interchange (A2038);
b) both carriageways of the A27 between Southeram Roundabout (A26) and Hollingbury Interchange;
