A MESSAGE FROM HIGHWAYS ENGLAND
Balfour Beatty, on behalf of Highways England, will soon be starting utility survey works near Claylane Woods that will require us to temporarily divert a section of the 177 cycleway.
The works will involve excavating two trenches and using scanning equipment to identify the existing utilities. Before doing so, we will first need to remove shrubbery at the trench locations. Please note that none of the ancient woodland will be impacted by these works.
During this period, a section of the 177 cycleway will be diverted around the works.
On occasions, we may have to close the A2 eastbound slip road from the Gravesend East junction at night. This will be to enable us to carry out our installation of a safety barrier or make alterations to it. This allows us to carry out the works safely and protect the workforce.
These surveys are to help us better understand the locations of existing underground utilities along and near to the proposed route of the Lower Thames Crossing. This will help us plan utility diversions and where they would be required to build the project.
For more information on these survey activities, please visit our website here.
