Northdown Road, Cliftonville, Margate

We are carrying out road safety improvement works

What are we planning to do?

Kent County Council are planning to construct a new zebra crossing on Northdown Road near to its junction with Athelstan Road (please see a plan of where the works will take place overleaf).

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

The work will take around four weeks to complete, commencing on Monday 22nd October 2018 (excluding weekends), between the hours 07:30 and 15:30 when impacting on the carriageway. This type of work can be affected by bad weather, so if it is not possible for us to carry it out at this time, we will arrange a new date and let you know via a letter drop to your home. We will also put up signs along the road, before we start, showing the date we plan to start work.

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

The works will be undertaken on the public highway within the carriageway limits and during working hours traffic on Northdown Road around the worksite will be restricted to single file and controlled by two way traffic signals. There maybe some small delay to journey times during site working hours. The bus stop opposite the car wash will be suspended and Margate bound bus services will not stop at the Athelstan Road junction.

Why do we want to do this work?

Kent County Council are carrying out the works to improve road safety on Northdown Road as there is a history of recorded pedestrian casualties on this section of the road.

Keeping you and our staff safe

We want to complete the works as quickly as we can and without causing you too much inconvenience. So 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. Everyone is entitled to a safe workplace and our staff work next to moving traffic and risk injury every day to maintain and improve the highway for everyone.

Please keep this leaflet safe in case you need to contact us
