Thank you for contacting the A21 Tonbridge to Pembury Inbox regarding the closure of Tonbridge Road.
As you are aware we will be closing the existing Tonbridge Road on the approach to the Longfield Road roundabout, including the roundabout itself. Road users will be able to travel along the new slip roads and the new roundabout, both of which are currently being constructed and are located to the west of the existing carriageway – please refer to the attached sketch for the planned layout.
We have been working with Kent Police, Kent County Council and Pembury Hospital and we have agreed with Kent County Council for them to re-programme the traffic lights that are located at the A228 / Tonbridge Road crossroads in order to steady the throughput of traffic onto the A228.
We will be publicising this closure through forthcoming scheme updates and display boards at Pembury Hospital.
Currently road signs indicate closure between 20th August and Spring 2017
