As is the case with such schemes, our contractors constantly keep works under review with Kent County Council in order to ensure disruption is minimised. As part of that process we’ve trialled solutions for eastbound traffic leaving The Forum car park. Regular vehicles are able to take a left turn through the bus breakthrough onto the A2, but this will be improved to accommodate larger vehicles, such as HGVs, which currently travel down Station Street until they can safely turn onto their preferred route.
Milton Road will remain closed for at least one more week than planned. This is due to the conditions of the road, the amount of plant underneath it and the requirement to have Network Rail representatives on site. The works will be completed before the new school term at the latest.
The first phase of roadworks is on track to be completed by November 30th.
