Southern Gas Networks (SGN) is continuing to carry out network upgrades along the A2/ High Street, Newington. They will shortly be carrying out preparation work for when they move into Phase 2 of otheir project between Spade Lane to Mill Lane from Monday 21 October.
To ensure everyone’s safety, temporary traffic lights remain in place on the A2 / London Road around the work area. SGN manually controls their lights Monday to Friday between 7.30am and 7.30pm, and between 8am and 5pm on Saturdays. These lights will still be in operation outside of these times.
Oak Lane and Canterbury Lane will be fully reopened once phase one is completed. Wallbridge Lane will also resume two-way traffic flow.
From approximately 12 noon on Monday 21 October, Mill Lane will need to be temporarily closed for approximately four weeks. Signed diversion routes will be in place for motorists via Spade Lane, Meresborough Lane, Dane Lane, The Street, Hollow Lane and Lower Hartlip Hill.
Following consultation with Kent County Council and Medway Council, advanced warning signs can only be positioned on Kent County Council's geographical area.
SGN encourages all commuters to please plan ahead and allow extra time for their journey. Updates about the project can be found on SGN's dedicated web page.
SGN appreciates your understanding and patience while they carry out essential gas mains replacement work.
