Church Road, Cheriton, Folkestone – Upgrade of Existing Pedestrian Crossing Point

What are we planning to do?

Kent County Council are planning to carry out work to upgrade the existing crossing point in Church Road at the junction with Cheriton Court Road. The scheme includes widening the existing kerb buildout adjacent to the school playing field and narrowing the large junction mouth at Pond Hill Road. This carriageway narrowing will also pull the give way line forward, thus increasing visibility for motorists at the junction. Localised waiting restrictions will also increase visibility for both pedestrians and motorists.

When will the work start and how long will it take?

Construction will take up to two weeks to complete, commencing on Monday 1st October 2018, between the hours of 8.00am and 5.00pm. We will also put up signs along the road, in advance of the works, indicating the planned start date.

How will we carry out the works and how will it affect you?

The works will be undertaken using signing, coning and guarding whilst maintaining two way traffic flow.

Why do we want to do this work?

Kent County Council believe that the scheme offers a real opportunity to improve highway safety by improving the visibility for pedestrian and motorists in the area.

Keeping you and our staff safe

We want to complete the works as quickly as we can and without causing you too much inconvenience. Please respect our workers’ space and safety by driving carefully and slowly through the roadworks. Feedback from our workers shows that too many drivers go too fast through roadworks.
