Kent: Roadworks Completed For Bank Holidays

22 August 2014, 06:00

Most roadworks across the region's motorways and major routes have been put on hold for the Bank Holiday weekend.

The Highways Agency aimed to complete around 31 miles of roadworks by today and are suspending a further 24 miles in the South East, to help keep traffic moving.

Speaking to Heart, Mark Hallett, the operations manager at the Highways Agency said, "with the extra volumes of traffic on the road, there could be more congestion. Just by removing road works it will ease the flow of traffic and make people's journeys a lot easier."

The following roadworks in Kent will be completed in time for the August bank holiday weekend:

A2 Bean to Cobham (near Dartford)
Bridge inspection

M2 J6 (near Faversham)
Road marking

M20 J3-13 (near Maidstone and Folkestone)
Safety fence repair

M20 J8-9 (near Ashford)

The restrictions around the following roadworks in the county will be lifted temporarily over the bank holiday weekend:

A2070 between Sevington and Cloverleaf (near Ashford)
New junction improvement

A282 J1a-31 (near Dartford)
Bridge joint replacement work

M25 J3 (near Swanley)
Electrical work
