Ospringe Parish Council
IMPORTANT: PORTERS LANE AND PLUMFORD LANE CLOSED FROM 23 JULY
Porters Lane and Plumford Lane will be CLOSED to through traffic from 23 July for up to 41 days.
Kent County Council has taken the decision for safety reasons to prevent the narrow lanes becoming unofficial diversions during roadworks that will close the A251 Ashford Road between the M2 and A2.
The closures mean there will be no direct access between Brogdale Road and the A251 throughout the period.
The official diversion for traffic able to use the motorways is via the A251, M2 Motorway to Brenley Corner, A2 and Brogdale Road.
The alternative routes for non-motorway traffic are via the A251 Ashford Road, Faversham Road, A252 Canterbury Road, The Street, Maidstone Road, A28 Canterbury Road, Ashford Road, Thanington Road then joining the A2 Trunk Road at Thanington continuing via Brenley Corner to A2 London Road / Canterbury Road and Brogdale Road and vice versa.
KCC reserves the right to delay the start of the 41-day closure period by up to 21 days. It will be triggered once the relevant signs and barriers are in place.
