A programme of Surface Treatment of roads in the Brookland area and throughout Kent is due to start in the near future. As a result, it will be necessary to close a number of roads to allow the works to be carried out safely. The roads that require closures are shown below, with the extent of the closure and alternative routes. As at 11th April the dates of the closures are yet to be fully programmed. Once known, the planned dates of closures and other restrictions will be notified in advance of the works, and indicated by signage displayed on site 14 days before works are due to start.
The Brookland area roads affected, extent of closures and alternative routes are as follows:
- GROVE LANE, BRENZETT / BROOKLAND — Closure between Bowdell Lane and Brack Lane with alternative route via Bowdell Lane, B2080 Rhee Wall Road and Brack Lane.
- BRACK LANE, BROOKLAND — Closure between Kennards Lane and Snargate Lane with alternative route via Snargate Lane, B2080 Rhee Wall Road, King Street and Kennards Lane.
- BECKETT ROAD, BROOKLAND — Closure between A259 Rye Road and Harvey Road with alternative route via A259 Rye Road and Harvey Road.
- BEACON LANE (CLUBBS LANE), BROOKLAND — Closure between Hook Wall and Clubbs Lane with alternative route via Hook Wall and Clubbs Lane.
A complete list of other known roads affected in the Ashford and Shepway districts is set out below. Certain roads may require more than one closure:-
- For patching works (if required)
- For the actual surface treatment works
- For the subsequent reinstatement of road markings and adjustment of iron works (road drain covers, manhole covers, etc) needed to suit the new surface.
Closures will generally be between the times 07:00 hours and 19:00 hours each day, but there may be exceptions to this to suit local requirements. A temporary speed limit of 20 mph may be in place on certain roads for a period of about 7 days following the treatment. Where this does apply, the 20 mph Speed Limit will be clearly indicated by relevant signs clearly displayed on site. For those roads which are cul-de-sacs with no available diversion, every effort will be made to maintain access for residents, businesses and visitors, whenever it is safe to do so.
This programme is subject to weather and other factors which may cause changes at short notice. Every effort will be made to keep as close as possible to the programmed dates that are notified, and any changes will be advised locally and signposted on site.
All enquiries concerning this should be directed to the Road and Footway Asset Team, who are running the programme. The Helpline phone number is 03000 418181 – please ask for the Road and Footway Asset Team.
