Maintaining our roads (Road maintenance)
Almost all the roads in Adur and Worthing are maintained by West Sussex County Council's Highways department.
This means they are responsible for general maintenance of roads and pavements, as well as winter road maintenance and gritting.
The main exceptions are:
- the A27: This is managed by Highways England. For more information see:
Highways England website
- Private roads: These are generally the responsibility of the street owner, or frontager. For more information on the maintenance of private roads please see:
Private road maintenance - on the WSCC website
If you would like to report a problem regarding a road or pavement (such as potholes, faulty street lighting, damaged pavements or overgrown vegetation) please see:
