As part of the Spirit of Sittingbourne regeneration, preparatory works are beginning to take place that will enable the construction of the cinema and new leisure quarter later this year.
Work to improve drainage and resurface the Forum car park will begin this week with a new temporary entrance being installed from 9 April.
The main resurfacing work will commence from 16 April when the Forum end of the car park will be fenced off and the substantive drainage and resurfacing work will begin.
Throughout the works, we will provide the current number of 6 disabled parking bays with the temporary bays connected to the Forum by a safe and level route.
In addition to the above works, this week will see work to excavate and divert sewers in preparation for construction of the new multi-story car park.
St Michael’s Road will be closed for a short stretch on the westbound carriageway for up to 3 weeks. The closure runs from Station Street to the point where the bus access road from Station Street joins St Michael’s Road. The diversion route is via Station Street and using the bus lane to re-join St Michael’s Road, east of the Station Roundabout.
