Temporary traffic lights on Upper Brighton Road were installed last night while Southern Water teams fixed a burst water main.

The burst was fixed, but the lights had caused major traffic delays all day.

A Southern Water spokesman said: “We’re pleased to say our reinstatement work on the junction of Cissbury Road and Upper Brighton Road is complete and the 3 way traffic lights have been removed.

“We would like to thank road users for their patience and understanding while we carried out this vital work.”
