Public exhibitions ahead of A20 resurfacing through Dover, Kent

Local residents, businesses and road users are invited to attend a public exhibition next Wednesday (6 August) ahead of resurfacing on the A20 through Dover in September.

Resurfacing will be carried out between the Eastern Docks and Western Heights roundabouts to provide drivers with safe and reliable journeys, and prolong the life of the carriageway. It will involve overnight carriageway closures over four weeks.

Highways Agency Asset Manager Kevin Bown said:

Sections of the A20 will be resurfaced to provide drivers with safe and reliable journeys. These repairs follow the 2008 scheme. They have been carefully planned to minimise disturbance to local residents and business and will take place overnight, when traffic flows are at their lowest, to minimise disruption.

Road users and local residents can find out more about the work and the potential impact at an exhibition taking place at Dover Town Hall on Wednesday 6 August. I would invite anyone living, working or travelling near the A20 this September to come and speak to us at the exhibition.

Members of the project team will be at Dover Town Hall on Wednesday 6 August between 2pm and 7pm to answer questions that road users and residents may have.

The resurfacing will start on Monday 1 September and is due to be completed, weather permitting, on Saturday 27 September. It will be carried out overnight, between 8pm and 6am, in phases with clearly signed diversions in place.
