Another 6 weeks of roadworks for town centre
The Spirit of Sittingbourne will be undertaking its final programme of roadworks in May/June 2020.
The works, being carried out by Erith on behalf of Spirit of Sittingbourne, are occurring in order to allow minor utility installations and the resurfacing of the roads in and around the Bourne Place regeneration.
It is being carried out in two stages.
The first stage will involve four weeks, beginning 4 May 2020, on the following roads:
· St Michaels Road
· Little Dover Street
· Fountain Street
The second stage will involve two weeks, due to begin on 28 May 2020, on the following roads:
· West Street
· Station Street
The works require road closures, and therefore will be carried out overnight. The relevant roads will be closed between 20:00 and 05:00 during the works period.
Signed diversions will be in place notifying motorists of the closure times, which roads will be closed and alternative routes.
Localised access will remain in place, and contractors will assist where possible to minimise inconvenience to residents and motorists.
The contractors will be observing government health and safety guidance, with the appropriate social distancing measures.
A Spirit of Sittingbourne spokesperson said:
“The final stage of Spirit of Sittingbourne roadworks will occur over May to allow for utility installations and road resurfacing.
“We are working to minimise the disruption caused to any motorists, by undertaking the work overnight and clearly signposting alternative routes.
“Although Bourne Place openings will not be occurring on the previous timetable, due to the pandemic and lockdown measures, we are working to ensure the work is completed as quickly as possible.”
