Road Closure: This Sunday
20th March 2015

When KCC plan to carry out the work and how long it will take:
This is to inform you that as part of the on-going maintenance and improvement of the highway network, Kent County Council will be carrying out patching repair work to the carriageway of
Maidstone Road and High Street, Marden between the junction of Pattenden Lane and ‘Hartridge’.

Work is due to start on Sunday 22nd March 2015 and will take 1 day to complete.

How will KCC carry out the works and how will it affect you:
During these essential works, it will be necessary to close High Street and Maidstone Road so that we can carry out the works safely for both the workforce and road users. Works will take place between the hours of 09:30 and 15:30, and the road will be re-opened when it is safe to do so. It is inevitable that residents and businesses near the works will experience minor disruption, KCC aim to keep this to a minimum. Access to properties within the site will be maintained at all times although vehicle access to individual properties may be restricted for short periods whilst work is carried out. If you have any particular access requirements please let the workforce on site know or call KCC on the number provided below.

A signed diversion route will be in place during the closure via Maidstone Road, Underlyn Lane, Green Lane, B2162 Collier Street, Maidstone Road, Sheephurst Lane and Gouhurst Road (and vice versa).

What you can do to help:
KCC need your help to make sure the work is done as quickly as possible. If your vehicle is usually parked on the carriageway, please could you make sure you park it somewhere else away from the site whilst the works are being carried out.

Please respect KCC workers space and safety by driving carefully and slowly near where they are working. Feedback from their workers shows that too many drivers drive too fast. Their crews work next to moving traffic and risk injury every day, every one is entitled to a safe workplace.
