SGN engineers continue to upgrade the gas pipe in London Road at its junction with Oak Lane, Hartlip Hill. For everyone’s safety around the site, temporary traffic lights remain in place around the work area.
In agreement with Kent County Council to keep everyone safe, a temporary 30mph speed limit is in place and traffic will be able to enter Oak Lane from London Road. Canterbury Lane will be closed and Wallbridge Lane made one way with a signed diversion in place. Vehicles heavier than 7.5 tons will not be permitted to use side roads.
Following consultation with Highways England and Medway, an alternative route will not be in place for HGVs and no permit scheme will be used at this stage. SGN has given assurances that it will continue to update local residents on the development of the work.
SGN appreciates everyone's understanding and patience while they carry out essential gas mains replacement work in the area. Latest updates on the project can be found on their dedicated website page- SGN Website
