Dear Stakeholder

 

A2 Emergency Resurfacing Whitfield Roundabout to Coldred Lane

 

I am writing to inform you that we will shortly be carrying out emergency resurfacing works to the A2 in both directions between Whitfield Roundabout and Coldred Lane, including Whitfield Roundabout. These works will provide a temporary surface to the deteriorated carriageway allowing for a more reliable and safer journey for road users.

 

For the safety of our workforce and customers, the works will be carried out overnight in three phases, between 8pm – 6am when there are fewer vehicles on the road.

 

Phase 1: Wednesday 10 March 2021 for three nights (A2 closed both directions)

Phase 2: Tuesday 6 April 2021 for two nights (A2 closed both directions)

 

During phase 1 and 2 the below diversion routes will be in place:

Eastbound: Leave the M2 at junction 7, diverted traffic will follow A299, A256 to re-join the A2 at Whitfield Interchange

Westbound: Leave the A2 at Whitfield Interchange, diverted traffic will follow the A256, A299 to re-join the A2 at junction 7 of M2.

 

Phase 3: Thursday 8 April 2021 for two nights resurfacing of Whitfield Roundabout

 

During Phase 3 the below diversion routes will be in place:

Residents and local traffic north of A2 Whitfield Roundabout will be diverted at the A2 Whitfield Interchange onto the A256 northbound to access Whitfield via Sandwich road

Residents and local traffic south of A2 Whitfield Roundabout will be diverted at the A2 Whitfield Interchange onto Honeywood Park Way for access.

 

All A2 traffic will utilise the below diversion routes:

Eastbound: Leave the M2 at junction 7, diverted traffic will follow A299, A256 to re-join the A2 at Whitfield Interchange

Westbound: Leave the A2 at Whitfield Interchange, diverted traffic will follow the A256, A299 to re-join the A2 at junction 7 of M2.

 

Please note that these works are subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

 

Access for emergency services will be maintained, please approach the closure point for guidance.

 

To Note: There is a scheme in planning to fully treat the condition of the carriageway in this area, once details are complete we will share this information with you.

 

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption you may experience during this work.
