In Brighton, North Street remains shut off to the public and vehicles this morning, following an incident yesterday concerning the structural safety of a building. The situation unfolded when emergency services rushed to North Street after receiving reports about a potentially unstable roof on one of the businesses there.

As a precaution and to ensure public safety, North Street has been closed off while emergency teams and structural engineers assess the situation and work to secure the building. This closure has significantly impacted the city’s traffic flow, with diversions set up to reroute vehicles away from the affected area.

Brighton's North Street Closure Continues Following Building Safety Concerns

Sussex Police have issued a statement urging residents and commuters to avoid North Street and opt for alternative routes to navigate around the city. The disruption has particularly affected Brighton and Hove’s bus network, with several routes experiencing changes. Buses that usually traverse North Street are now being redirected via West Street, and services that typically end at Imperial Arcade are altering their terminus to Old Steine. Additionally, eastbound services from Churchill are being rerouted through Queens Road and North Road.

Brighton and Hove buses have advised passengers to stay updated with the latest service changes through their communication channels, as the adjustments impact many of the city’s key routes.
