Possible Re-Opening Of One Lane On The A249

Possible Re-Opening Of One Lane On The A249

Highways England (HE) has confirmed that it is hoping to reopen one lane on the northbound A249 later this week, following completion of temporary works.

They have confirmed that it is "currently unsafe to reopen the slip road and inside lane as surveys have not confirmed the stability of the ground underneath the road and the adjacent void in the ground is a potential risk to drivers".

Update from Highways England:

A further survey will be carried out on Tuesday 26th January.

We expect to receive a report next Friday 29th January in respect of all the investigations that have been carried out to determine what repairs are necessary. We will then set a timeframe which will take into account what work is required and how long the work will take.

No work will be taking place at the weekend. We will review the situation at the end of next week and I'll provide you with a further update.
