The Street Closure has been postponed...
The previously reported closure of The Street Iwade due to have been from 3 January 2012 has now been postponed. A new date has yet to be finalised, but it is likely to be from 30th January 2012.

A further bulletin will be issued once the new date has been confirmed.

This postponement is to allow more time to alleviate some of the problems, and make and notify arrangements for school travel.

The closure is necessary to allow the replacement of the old gas mains. The road is too narrow to carry out these works without closing it.

Once the closure starts, traffic will be unable to drive all the way through Iwade using The Street; the road will be closed between School Lane and Sanderling Way.

The signposted alternative route will be via Ferry Road, Sheppey Way, Grovehurst Road,A249 Iwade By-pass and Sheppey Way.

Morrison Utility Services and Southern Gas Networks apologise for any inconvenience caused by these works, and changes to the date.
