Using a car to travel to/from Gatwick Airport this coming weekend will be trickier than normal.
The M23 leading to Gatwick will be shut for 38 hours meaning no access to the airport from the motorway.
Highways England (HE) has announced that the Gatwick spur at Junction 9 on the M23 will be closed from 10pm on Friday 17 May to midday on Sunday, 19 May.
A statement by HE says:
“The areas where we will be working include Junction 9 and Gatwick Spur and roundabout.
“The southbound exit slip and northbound exit slip will be closed for traffic. There will be no access into Gatwick Airport from Junction 9.
“The M23 main carriageway in both directions will be open for traffic. There will be a fully signed diversion route in place.”
