Planned dates are given for each road, but the works are weather dependant and part of a major programme, so there are likely to be some changes.

Roads that are missed will be deferred until further on in the programme, with the revised dates locally signposted.

The dates of closures are planned to be weekdays only, but some weekend working may be needed to catch up if the programme falls behind.

The works will generally be carried out in rolling sections along the lengths of the roads in question.

These works are being carried out on behalf of Kent Highway Services Countywide Improvements Team.
