A23

The A23 is a major road in England, running from London to Brighton. It was first constructed in the 1930s and is approximately 58 miles long. It has two lanes in each direction, which provide two-way traffic flow.

The busiest times on the A23 are usually during weekday rush hours, as well as weekends during the summer months when there is a large influx of visitors to Brighton. The traffic flow is generally quite good, as engineers work hard to keep up with the demand on the popular route.

Safety statistics for the A23 are generally good. There have been fewer than 10 reported road casualties throughout the past decade, with no fatalities recorded. This indicates that drivers are aware of the risks and take extra care on the A23, despite the amount of traffic.
