It may be necessary to close various side roads at their junctions with Cheriton Road and Cheriton High Street at certain times as the works progress, as and when indicated on site.

The following roads will become two-way during these works, as and when the relevant one-way signs are obscured:

Park Road, St Winifred’s Road, Grange Road, Coombe Road & Trimworth Road

Personnel will be on site to allow managed access for residents and businesses when it is safe to do so, but there are likely to be delays and certain times when this is not possible for safety reasons.

The closures are to enable Kent County Council to carry out essential carriageway resurfacing works.

The works have been timed to be carried out overnight, to reduce their impact.

Some delays are likely, especially earlier in the evenings, so it is recommended that motorists allow extra time for their journeys or consider using alternative routes during these works.

The planned dates and duration may change for various reasons including the current coronavirus situation and adverse weather conditions, with any changes signposted on site and notified locally.
