Resurfacing disruption for village
Residents will face more than two weeks of disruption when a road is resurfaced.
Work on the A252 in Molash, which starts tomorrow (Friday) and ends on Monday, October 12, will take place at night, between 7.30pm and 5am, on weekdays only.
The maintenance, by Kent County Council (KCC), will be divided into two phases - initially from Church Lane to Chapel Lodge, then from Shottenden Lane to Cutler Farm and will remove the existing road surface.
It will include replacing manhole covers, drains and all the road studs (cats’ eyes) and repainting the road markings. KCC warn that the work can be noisy. Alan Casson, KCC resurfacing manager, said: “This is essential work as part of the ongoing maintenance and improvement of the highway network.
“Unfortunately, it is inevitable that residents and businesses near the works will experience some disruption and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused, but we will try to keep this to a minimum.
“Access to properties will need to be restricted for a short period while work is carried out in front of each property and across road junctions.”
Diversions will be put in place, but the The George Inn will remain open throughout.
