Main road closed for sum­mer

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Blaze -

A busy road in Ash­ford that is home to two of the town’s big­gest busi­nesses and a sports sta­dium will be closed for 12 weeks over the sum­mer hol­i­days.

Kent County Coun­cil (KCC) will be clos­ing the A2070 Ken­ning­ton Road from Mon­day, June 19 to Sun­day, Septem­ber 10 to en­able the road to be widened at a tight cor­ner.

KCC will work with all the busi­nesses af­fected by the clo­sure.

The di­ver­sion route will be the M20 be­tween junc­tion 10 and junc­tion 9 for mo­tor­way traf­fic.

Non-mo­tor­way traf­fic is likely to be sent through Ash­ford town cen­tre.

The road con­tains the Batch­e­lors food fac­tory and the neigh­bour­ing Gi­vau­dan per­fume plant, and the Julie Rose ath­let­ics sta­dium.

More de­tails on the pro­posed diver­sions will be is­sued nearer the time.

KCC will be li­ais­ing with bus com­pa­nies, schools and busi- nesses to make sure as lit­tle in­con­ve­nience as pos­si­ble is caused by the lengthy clo­sure.
