Surface Treatment Road Closures 2017 – Ashford Area

Surface Treatment Road Closures 2017 – Ashford Area

 

A programme of Surface Treatment of roads 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.

 

This Bulletin gives details about the closures in the Ashford Area

 

All enquiries concerning this should be directed to the Road and Footway Asset Team, who are running the programme.

 

The roads that require closures are shown below, with the extent of the closure and alternative routes.

 

At the time this Bulletin is being issued, 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.

 

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.
