Beginning on the 10th June and ending some time in December The Spirit of Sittingbourne partnership will be undertaking roadworks on one way section of St Michael’s Road.
Work will occur across two stages, on each side of the road. This will mean a single lane will remain open throughout the works period, allowing traffic to flow through. The road will be converted to a single-lane route permanently following the works.
Whilst we are working to minimise any impact arising from these works, with a single lane remaining open throughout, we are advising residents to build additional time into their journeys once the works begin.
Local shops and businesses will remain open as usual. Access to Cockleshell Walk Car Park will be maintained throughout the works, though will result in a temporary reduction in the number of parking spaces.
We are given to understand that the works are in connection with utilities for the leisure aspects of the redevelopment.
The roadworks are part of the Spirit of Sittingbourne regeneration, which will deliver £326M of investment into the town over the next ten years.
A Spirit of Sittingbourne spokesperson said:
"From June 10th, works will begin on the gyratory at the western side of St Michaels Road."
"Our contractors will ensure that a single lane through the impacted area is maintained during daylight hours."
"The maintaining of the single lane will minimise the impact of the works – they may, however, lead to slight delays in and around the area."
"We are therefore advising residents and commuters to build an additional time into their journeys."
