Gas Network Upgrade – Common Road Ightham Area

KCC road closure sign

Message from SGN:

We are writing to let you know about our project to upgrade our old metal gas mains and services with new plastic pipe in the Common Road area of Ightham. This essential work will ensure your community continues to receive a safe and reliable gas supply.

Following consultation with Kent Highways our contractor, WCB Utilities will be starting work on 3 January 2023.

Due to the position of the pipes in the road, and to ensure the safety of everyone around our worksite we will need to close some of the roads around our works area.

  • Common Road from 3 January for approximately 7 weeks. We will be working from the junction with the A25 to outside Hillcroft.
  • Copt Hall Road, Redwell Lane and Old Lane at their junctions with Common Road from 3 January for approximately 3 weeks.
  • Spring Lane at the junction with A25 from 23 January for approximately 3 weeks. We will also be working on the A25 during this time using two-way traffic lights.

While the roads are closed, there will be signed diversion routes in place and access will be maintained for residents and businesses.

We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks, and therefore we only use traffic management that we feel is efficient enough to complete these works safely for ourselves and the public.

Please share this information with anyone you think may be impacted by our project.
