Temporary overnight weekend road closures in the Town Centre

Last Updated: 13 Feb 2020 10:51am

Works to deliver the Highway and Public realm improvements in the High Street, Market Street and Lowfield Street commenced in May 2019, and are now due for completion in June 2020.

As part of the progression of the construction phase, road closures at these locations are due to be implemented between 2200hrs on Friday, through to 0500hrs on Monday, for up to 8 weekends:

1. Friday 7-2-20 to Monday 10-2-20
2. Friday 14-2-20 to Monday 17-2-20 (CANCELLED DUE TO ADVERSE WEATHER FORECAST)
3. Friday 21-2-20 to Monday 24-2-20
4. Friday 28-2-20 to Monday 2-3-20
5. Friday 6-3-20 to Monday 9-3-20
6. Friday 13-3-20 to Monday 16-3-20
7. Friday 20-3-20 to Monday 23-3-20
8. Friday 27-3-20 to Monday 30-3-20

These closures are required so that Works in the narrow sections of the carriageway and footway where the High Street meets Market Street and where Market Street meets Lowfield Street can be safely carried out by our contractor. Whilst the closures are in place, other areas of work will also take advantage of the closures.

While the closures are in place, clearly signed diversions will be in operation. Access for Emergency Services is required to be provided by the contractor at all times, but all other vehicles will be excluded so that the Works can be efficiently and safely progressed.

We will work very hard to limit the disruption whilst these works are carried out, but we would be grateful for your understanding and patience, and please accept our apologies in advance for any inconvenience that these closures cause.

The telephone number 07710 077737 will be available should you need require assistance at any time during the closures.

Should you have any comments or queries regarding the above or any other aspect of the project, please do not hesitate to make contact using the details above.

Yours faithfully,

Keith Longley
Programme Manager - Dartford Town Centre Regeneration
