30 MPH In Progress

New 30MPH Speed Limit – Proposed Works October 2017

Kent County Council, in consultation with Pluckley Parish Council, is intending to extend the 30mph speed limit on the following roads within Pluckley:

Forge Hill, Lambden Road, Smarden Road, Smarden Bell Road, Station Road, Thorne Estate.

These works will involve replacing 40mph speed limit signs and repeaters, installing new posts where required and revised lining works. These proposals also include a high friction surface and in order to carry out these works safely, it will be necessary to close the following roads from 9 October to 13 October.

Egerton Road
Charing Road
Swan Lane
The Street
Station Road
Smarden Road
Smarden Bell Road

Local diversions will be in place and access to residents maintained as far as is practicable. Prior to the 9th October, new signs and posts will be erected but with minimal disruption.
