A2 Road Closure 19-22 Nov - Brenley to Canterbury

A2 BOUGHTON AND DUNKIRK CONCRETE REPAIRS

Upcoming closures to the A2 Eastbound and Westbound carriageway between Boughton and Dunkirk. Work will involve full depth concrete treatment including crack repairs and new surfacing.


For the safety of our workforce and road-users, we’ll be closing the A2 carriageway separately between M2 Junction 7 Brenley Corner and the A28 at Canterbury and A2050 Canterbury off slip.


When the carriageway closures are in place residents and businesses that have direct access to their properties off the closed carriageway will be accommodated by the escort service. There will be no escort through the works to access the open carriageway. Please note there may be a slight wait for the escort vehicle and our operatives will be wearing body cameras and CCTV footage will be in place for the safety of the public and workforce from errant vehicles and anti-social behaviour.


Please note that when being escorted there is a 15mph speed limit in place and 5mph speed limit when passing the works area for the safety of the public and workforce.
