Road Maintenance in Your Area Carriageway Patching Foxborough Hill, Woodnesborough

When we plan to carry out the work and how long it will take
This is to inform you that as part of the on-going maintenance and improvement of the highway network,
Kent County Council will be carrying out patching repair work to the carriageway of Foxborough Hill,
Woodnesborough from Oak Hill to 30/National Speed limit speed signs.
These road surface improvement works are programmed to start on the June 27
th 2024 and should take 1
day to complete. These activities will be undertaken during a working window between the hours of 09:30-
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. During this closure, a signed diversion route will be in
place during the closure via Drainless Road, Beacon Lane and vice versa.

What we plan to do
Safety critical road defects will be repaired via saw cutting and removing the damaged road surface, and
then reinstating in tarmac. Reinstatements will then be laid to profile and compacted to the level of the
existing road surface.

How you can help
It is inevitable that residents and businesses near the works will experience some disruption, but we will try
to keep these to a minimum. Any pavements will remain open at all times, but vehicle access to properties
will need to be restricted for a short period while work is carried out in front of each property. If you have any
particular access needs, please let the workforce on site know.
We need your help to make sure the work is done as quickly as possible and to the best possible quality.
If your vehicle is usually parked on the carriageway, please make sure you park it somewhere else
away from the site whilst the works are carried out, so the road is clear for us to complete these
works activities.
