Our upcoming roadworks are part of our plan to improve Medway and make it a better place to live, work and visit. 

While we're making improvements, you might face disruption to your journeys. 

You can limit disruption by checking roadworks, closures, diversions and traffic updates in Medway online.

Find out if works will affect you 

To find out what works are happening near you, you can:

  • search a specific location
  • choose what updates you want to be shown 
  • select a date range to see updates for a specific period of time

When you click on an update you can see:

  • what work is being done
  • the start and end date of the works
  • what roads will be affected
  • the status of the works 

How works could affect you

Canal Road closure

Canal Road will be closed for 8 weeks from Monday 4 February 2019.

During this period the 170 bus will divert along the High Street, A2 to Canal Road (then normal route), and a shuttle bus will run between:

  • Chatham Waterfront
  • Dock Road
  • Maritime Way
  • Medway Tunnel
  • Anthonys Way
  • and terminate at Whitewall Road

Notices will be put up at bus stops along the route.

Traffic at the Medway City Estate

There will be more construction traffic to get to and deliver materials via the Medway City Estate.

This delivery route has been planned to avoid the town centre and residential areas.

Noise and vibration

The project involves a need for bulldozers and compacting equipment which will cause some noise and vibration. We will do all we can to minimise disruption where possible.

We'll monitor the noise and vibrations each day at the boundaries of the closest affected properties, so we continue to work within the recommended guidelines.

Riverside Tavern

Access to Riverside Tavern and bus lanes by vehicles and pedestrians will be maintained as normal.
