The road surface from Havant to the Fishbourn (A27) roundabout despite almost yearly repairs is back to a dangerous condition,do your contractors not give you a guarantee on the quality of their work as the road surface always breaks up within 18 months, i had to replace a tyre due to the state of the road 3 years ago and the road surface is still in a dangerous condition. The carriageway in the opposite direction is also as bad.I cannot understand why this section of road is always breaking up. I look forward to your response.

  • Thank you for your report concerning the condition of the A27 carriageway between Havant and Fishbourne.

    We carry out weekly safety inspections along this stretch of the A27 and while we’re aware of surface defects, this is a concrete road with a tarmac overlay of 22/25mm and the loss of material would not harm or damage a car and aren’t considered safety issues. We continue to monitor when any safety issues will be reported for urgent mitigation.

    Longer term to address the deterioration we have in our forward programme for this financial year, 2022/23 a resurfacing scheme ‘A27 Chichester to Emsworth’. The scheme is currently in design, so we're unable to confirm the construction date at this time.

    Kind regards

    National Highways
