Sections of the coastbound A2 will be resurfaced as the existing surface has reached the end of its life. It will involve four weeks of overnight carriageway or slip road closures.
Highways England asset manager for Kent Kevin Bown said:
We will be resurfacing sections of the A2 to provide safe and reliable journeys for the hundreds of thousands of drivers that rely on the A2 each day. We have carefully planned the work to take place overnight, when we know traffic flows are lowest to minimise disruption.
The work will take place overnight, between 9pm and 5am.
The coastbound A2 will be closed at two locations in different phases, with access to Bluewater shopping centre and Ebbsfleet station from the diversion route, on separate nights.
The coastbound A2 will be closed between the Bean (B255) and Ebbsfleet (B259) junctions. A clearly signed diversion will be in place via the B255, A226 and B259.
The coastbound A2 will be closed between the exit and entry slip roads at the Bean junction. A clearly signed diversion will be in place via the exit and entry slip roads.
The dates of each closure will be publicised in advance.
