Work to improve signage for customers, providing a more efficient reminder that DartCharge payments are due.

We’re carrying out work to improve the embankment’s stability along the A21 from Seven Oaks bypass at Westerham Road to Morley’s Roundabout on the southbound carriageway

This will involve installing soil nails to the slope and carrying out some vegetation clearance, replacement fencing, installing new drainage and planting new vegetation.

This work will means we’ll need to reduce the A21 from the Sevenoaks bypass at Westerham Road to Morley’s roundabout down to one open lane with a 50mph speed limit during the day and night for the duration of the works.  There will be free recovery in place.

The A21 carriageway from Seven Oaks bypass at Westerham Road to Morleys roundabout will be closed overnight on Sunday 11 April 2021 from 8pm until 6am the next day. This is so we can remove the current single lane traffic system with 50mph back to normal.

Diversion route

At the A25 junction, southbound traffic will be diverted off the A21 and onto the A25 Westerham Road eastbound. At Riverhead, traffic will be diverted south onto A224 London Road and onto A225 Tonbridge to Morleys roundabout.

A21 Kippington to Dibden Lane diversion

There will also be further overnight closures for:

  • positioning plant and equipment
  • removing traffic management

We will provide further details nearer to the time for these works.

We’ll be carrying out bridge repair works and surfacing to the A3 Bridge Hill bridge, which is a mile north of Petersfield.

Work will involve removing the existing surface over and around the deck joints, replacing them with new deck joints, and the resurfacing the road along with laying out replacement road markings.

To undertake these works safely, we’ll be closing the A3 Bell Hill bridge for two weekends:

Weekend One Closure:

6am Saturday 5 June 2021 to 6am Sunday 6 June 2021.

Weekend Two Closure:

6am Saturday 12 June 2021 to 6pm Sunday 13 June 2021.

Diversion Route for both directions:

Bell Hill, Winchester Road, A272, A32, onto Bell Hill signed ‘steep’, Froxfield.

Concrete repairs are taking place to the bridge which carries the A272 over the A34 at Three Maids Hill, north of Winchester (Hampshire).

These repairs will improve the longevity of the bridge and ensure safety for our customers.

Specialist scaffolding will be in place below the bridge, and our teams will be elevated platforms to reach the areas to be repaired.

Narrow lanes and a 50mph speed limit will be in place on the A34 northbound and southbound carriageways for the duration of the repairs. There will also be a lane closure and a 30mph speed limit on the A272 in both directions across the bridge.

In addition, the A34 southbound carriageway will be closed overnight for a 16 week period, followed by the A34 northbound carriageway which will be closed overnight for a 9 week period. All closures will be between 9pm and 6am, Monday to Friday nights only.

Clearly signed diversions will be in place using the A303 and A33 for light and non-motorway vehicles and via the A303 and M3 for HGVs and motorway permitted vehicles.
