On 4th November 2019 South East Water will begin to install a new water main along Marden Road.  During the works and on a rolling basis, 200m sections of the road between the Clapper Lane junction and the Hen & Duckhurst Farm roundabout will be closed to through traffic.  The position of the new main and the width of the road preclude working under traffic light controls.  Access will be maintained for emergency services, pedestrians and residents.

A road closure order will apply for up to 47 days, although South East Water is aware of the disruption suffered by residents and businesses during previous road closures and has stated that its contractors will do everything possible to complete work ahead of time.  Before the start of the works, South East Water will undertake a letter drop to residents and hold a drop-in event in the village (date and venue to be confirmed).  Information about the event will be published on this website as soon as details are received.

During the works, the alternative route for through traffic is via A229 Station Road, Maidstone Road, Staplehurst Road, B2079 Maidstone Road, Howland Road, Park Road, Marden Road and vice versa.

A second phase of work will take place in January and February next year between the Hen & Duckhurst Farm roundabout and Oliver Road.  This will be under traffic light control.

For any enquiries about the works, South East Water’s telephone number is 0333 000 0365.  Updates will be published on South East Water’s website at https://www.southeastwater.co.uk/.
