Leesons Hill and Station Road closed on Monday

Published Friday, 21 July 2017

Leesons Hill and Station Road will be closed from Monday 24 July at the junction with Sevenoaks Way A224.

Leesons Hill and Station Road will be closed from Monday 24 July at the junction with Sevenoaks Way A224 as SGN start a major gas main replacement project.

More information can be found by visiting the SGN website.

Sevenoaks Way will remain open, with temporary traffic lights controlling traffic on the main road, enabling traffic to move along Sevenoaks Way in both directions only.

Whilst the SGN work along Sevenoaks Way is envisaged to take 3 months in total, the closure of Leesons Hill and Station Road is expected to last for around 5 weeks, with this work completed over the quieter school holiday period.

The Council will also be working over the same period to carry out junction improvements at the junctions of Leesons Hill and Station Road, creating additional lane space, helping to improve traffic flow through the junction and reducing related congestion.
