A20 Junction Improvement Works:
Work by the Port of Dover to improve journeys on the A20 continues this week. Lane closures will remain in place with a contraflow system between the Limekiln and York Street roundabouts for the duration of the works. There will continue to be no right turns from the A20 eastbound on to Union Street and from Union Street on to the A20. Clearly signed diversions will be in place.
Due to ongoing heightened French security checks, the Port of Dover is advising customers to allow plenty of time for their journey and and plan routes in advance to avoid delays. Local traffic may wish to consider using alternative routes where possible to avoid queuing traffic.
Customers are also adviised to consult the Port of Dover Twitter travel account (@PoD_travelnews) for the latest information.
Scheduled night closures on 10th and 11th September
This night closure is required to install additional traffic management to enable work at the York Street Junction to begin as planned. The closure will involve sections of the A20 extending from the Court Wood Junction to just after York Street Junction. Timings for the closure will be from 2000hrs on the 10th September to 0500hrs on 11th September, and 2000hrs on the 11th September to 0500hrs on 12th September. During the night closure there will be clearly signed diversion routes so that any vehicles wishing to access the area can still do so. Any residents that require access to Snargate Street during this time will be escorted through the works by a member of the traffic team. Once the traffic management has been installed, lane closures will be in place between the Limekiln Junction and the Woolcomber Street Junction. During this time there will be no right turn facility along this section of the A20 both for eastbound traffic and westbound traffic as shown on the enclosed diversion map. Signage will be clearly displayed to direct traffic through the road works and access to the businesses and residences of Snargate Street, York Street and the Esplanade will be maintained. As a result of the concurrent junction work we have managed to reduce the number of night closures required. There are expected to be seven more night closures, whilst we deliver this scheme.
