Almost all of the roads and pathways in West Sussex are looked after by West Sussex County Council's highways department. If you have a problem with any of them, please report the problem:
The main exceptions are:
- Trunk roads:
- These are major roads of national strategic importance and are managed by the Highways Agency.
- In Adur and Worthing, only the A27 is a trunk road.
- Other roads in East and West Sussex that are trunk roads are the A23 and M23.
- Private (unadopted) roads:
Winter road maintenance and gritting for roads in Adur and Worthing is managed by West Sussex County Council (WSCC), except for the A27 which is managed by the Highways Agency.
- Road salting (gritting), winter maintenance and FAQs - clearing snow and ice (on the WSCC website)
- Salt bins (on the WSCC website)
West Sussex County Council has also produced a short video about gritting which is available via the link below:
Private roads are also known as unadopted roads and are generally the responsibility of the street owner, or the 'frontager'.
