Kent County Council Notice: Road Closure – Horn Street, Cheriton, Folkestone

The planned closure of part of Horn Street, Cheriton, near Folkestone, will now be from Monday 28 January 2019, with estimated completion by 29 April 2019.

The closure planned for Monday 21 January did not go ahead for operational reasons, and has been deferred until next Monday, 28 January. Apologies are given for any inconvenience caused by this change.

Horn Street will be closed at its northern end, between St Martin’s Primary School and the junction with Queen’s Avenue.

Local access to the remainder of Horn Street continues from either direction up to where the road is closed, but there will be no through access during these works.

The alternative route for all through traffic is via Horn Street, A259 Seabrook Road, B2063 Hospital Hill, West Road, North Road, Military Road, Risborough lane and Church Road.

Access for any residents affected will be maintained when it is safe to do so, but there are likely to be delays and certain times when this is not possible for safety reasons.

The closure is to allow works to be carried out to upgrade the local sewer for new developments, being carried out by Cappagh Browne, working with Southern Water.

Due to the nature of these works, it will not be possible to re-open the road outside the working hours.

There is a chance that the works may over-run for such reasons as adverse weather conditions or unforeseen engineering difficulties.
