Temporary road closures removed

Home / Blog / Temporary road closures removed
Temporary road closures in Faversham, Sheerness and Sittingbourne were removed on 19 July following the Government’s latest announcement on the easing of restrictions.

The closures were put in place last summer to help encourage visitors back to town centres after the first lockdown by creating space to safely social distance.

With end of restrictions on Monday, 19 July, the closures were removed allowing traffic to use the high streets again.

Cllr Monique Bonney, cabinet member for economy and property at Swale Borough Council, said:

“Following the Government’s announcement that restrictions will be ending on Monday, 19 July, we can confirm the temporary road closures in our town centres will be removed from that date.

“The Government has taken the view that despite rising cases the restrictions can be eased, but we are urging people to remain cautious and behave sensibly.

“The vaccination programme is helping to reduce the impact of the pandemic, but we aren’t out of the woods yet. We all need to do what we can to keep each other safe, and to try to avoid restrictions being reimposed later in the year.

“If restrictions are reintroduced in future, we will consider using the temporary road closures again as an option to help people use the town centres safely.”
