Temporary Road Closure & 20 and 40 mph Speed Limits – Various Road, Tonbridge & Malling (Surface Treatments) – 9th March 2021

To allow carriageway patching and preservation works to be carried out, Kent County Council has made an Order to temporarily prohibit through traffic on various roads in Tonbridge & Malling.

This Order takes effect on or after 9th March 2021 for a period of up to 18 months or until works have been completed. It may be necessary for some of the roads to be closed for up to three occasions for each phase of the works. Planned dates will be published in advanced of the works on One.Network and indicated by signage displayed on site 14 days before they start.

After the Surface Treatment works, a temporary speed limit of 20 mph may need to be imposed in place on certain roads for a period of up to 7 days. Where the 20 mph Speed Limit does apply, this will be clearly indicated by relevant signs displayed on site.

These works are subject to weather and other factors which may potentially cause changes at short notice; every effort will be made to keep as close as possible to the planned dates that are notified, and any changes will be publicised.
