The first stage is currently underway on the western end of the one-way section of St Michael’s Road.
At the beginning of September, the works will move to the eastern end of the one-way system, and onto Fountain Street and Dover Street adjacent to Spring Street car park leading to Milton Road (by the railway bridge).
Fountain Street and Dover Street (from Spring Street car park to Milton Road by the railway bridge) will be fully closed during the works, and a traffic management system will be in place at the end of the St Michael’s Road one-way system near Lidl.
There will also be traffic management at the intersection of St. Michael’s Road and Dover Street (by Spring Street car park), while we conduct works on the junction. The remainder of the St Michael’s Road one-way system, by Cockleshell Walk, will remain as a single lane.
A map is attached to this press release, and will be uploaded to the Spirit of Sittingbourne website, which outlines where the second stage of works will impact.
The highway improvements are part of the Sittingbourne town centre regeneration, ultimately making the area more pedestrian friendly.
