Resur­fac­ing dis­rup­tion for vil­lage

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - New Approach At Primary -

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.
