UPDATE - 6 August 2019
I have received an update from Liberty Property Trust, which can be found here.
A few weeks ago I warned of the impact of upcoming roadworks, and the A228 closure at Kings Hill is certainly causing a number of issues – not just for residents here, but anyone trying to get between Mereworth and the M20. Liberty’s decision to close Kings Hill Avenue is making transport even more difficult, especially when trying to get on or off Kings Hill.
We might be only 3 days in but the works have more than 3 weeks to go. This chaos cannot continue. I’ve asked both Kent County Council and Liberty to look again at what they are doing to ensure that a solution is found which would reduce the traffic impact here while the A228 is shut. This should involve better signage preventing drivers heading to the area where the road is closed, and more certainty about access on Kings Hill Avenue.
I know Kings Hill Councillors are concerned about this as well and we all hope a solution can be found.
