ROAD CLOSURE AND WORKS WILL COMMENCE MONDAY 8 AUGUST 2022
The Kent County Council Road and Footway Asset Team will be undertaking essential carriageway and footway reconstruction works, including the construction of a new supporting retaining structure on the A257, Canterbury Road as it passes over Wingham River located to the west of Wingham village. This is due to erosion of the embankment which has caused subsidence within the carriageway and footway.
The works are expected to take four weeks to complete, and are programmed to commence during the School Summer Holidays, including weekends - PLEASE SEE THE START OF WORKS NOTICE BELOW.
