Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

ROAD and lane clo­sures are planned as the next phase of the ring-road trans­for­ma­tion gets un­der­way.

North Street will be tem­po­rar­ily closed from Sun­day for 12 weeks.

From this time, Welles­ley Road North will be closed at the Mace Lane junc­tion to pre­vent a ra­trun.

Work is also set to start on the New Street junc­tion and the ex­ist­ing sig­nals will be re­moved, al­low­ing free traf­fic flow but down to one lane. All other traf­fic move­ments will be con­trolled and tem­po­rary con­trolled cross­ings will be pro­vided.

Work will con­tinue in Sta­tion Road and Vicarage Road.

Some work to in­stall ducts to cen­tral is­lands is planned for Sun­days as Sta­tion Road will be re­duced to one lane.

The £11.3mil­lion scheme, launched in Jan­uary, is ex­pected to take up to 18 months.
