Overnight Closure for Resurfacing: A259 Sandgate Road from Westbourne Gardens and Clifton Gardens

As part of the on-going maintenance and improvement of the highway network, Kent County Council will be resurfacing Sandgate Road (A259) in two phases between the junction of Westbourne Gardens and Clifton Gardens.

These road surface improvement works are programmed to start on the 12th February 2020 and should take 7 nights (including weekends) to complete. These activities will be undertaken between the hours of 20:00 and 05:00 each day.

This type of work can be affected by bad weather, so if it is not possible for us to carry it out at this time, we will arrange a new date and let you know via a letter drop to your home. We will also put up signs along the road, before we start, showing the date we plan to start work.

During these essential works it will be necessary to close the road completely so that we can carry out the works safely for both the workforce and road users. The diversion route will be via:

  • Phase 1: Grimston Avenue, Shorncliffe Road and Castle Hill Avenue
  • Phase 2: A259 Earls Avenue, Shorncliffe Road and Castle Hill Avenue
