An alternative route for pedestrians will be signposted on site.

Local access to the remainder of Dover Road / New Street continues from either direction up to where the road is actually closed, but there will be no through access during these works.

The closures are to allow safe vehicular access during construction works at Sandwich Railway Station, being carried out by BAM Nuttall, working with Network Rail.

The works have been timed to be carried out overnight at weekends to reduce their impact.

There is a slight chance that the works may over-run for unforeseen reasons such as adverse weather conditions or engineering difficulties.
