Works to improve the road outside Luton Primary School are due to begin in Luton Road, Chatham, next week.

The improvement works, which include upgrades to the signalised pedestrian crossing and road resurfacing, will be carried out in two phases.

The first phase is due to begin on Monday, 9 August for approximately four weeks.

The second phase, which includes resurfacing Luton Road, is due to take place for one week from Monday, 25 October, during the October school half term.

To enable the works to be carried out safely, temporary traffic lights will be in place at both the Upper Luton Road and Ambrose Hill junctions. Luton High Street and Luton Road (from Upper Luton Road to Castle Road) will be closed from Monday, 16 August, between 7am and 7pm, for two weeks. The road will be reopened for local access only during evenings and at weekends however, there may unforeseen issues that require the road to remain closed.

The works are taking place during the school summer holidays to minimise disruption and we apologise for any inconvenience they may cause.  Access for residents will be maintained as much as practically possible.

We look after more than 800km of roads across Medway and each year we carry out improvements to make our roads and pavements safer and easier to use. The works outside the school, which will be carried out by Volker Highways, support our ambition to become a Child-Friendly City, putting children and young people at the heart of everything we do.
