Start date: 29 July 2019
Approximate duration: Four weeks
We are working to upgrade the gas network in the A228 Malling Road, Mereworth.
We are investing to replace our old gas mains and services with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply to the local area.
In consultation with Kent County Council, we are planning to start work on Monday 29 July.
To ensure everyone’s safety, we’re planning to temporarily close the A228 Malling Road between its junctions with Gibson Drive and Ashton Way.
A signed diversion will be in place for motorists via Seven Mile Lane and the A20 London Road. A second diversion route for HGVs and high vehicles will be in place via the A20 London Road, Hermitage Lane and the A26 Tonbridge Road.
We’re also planning to upgrade the gas network in the A26 Tonbridge Road – full details can be found below.
We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means that when the work is complete, people will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.
