Bowaters Roundabout work begins

By Amy Nickalls

Roads around Bowaters roundabout could be closed for two weeks as work begins on changing the layout today.

It was originally thought the A278 Hoath Way and the roundabout would be closed for four nights between September 18 and 23.

However, it is now expected to be closed for up to two weeks to allow for adverse weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

As part of the work, new spiral lanes will be put in between each junction to guide drivers into the correct lanes.

Signs will be put on the side of the road and new text markings will be written in the lanes telling road users which lane they need to be in.

Between the exits for Gillingham and Twydall, the inside lane is being removed and hatch markings will be put in.

Hatch markings will also appear to block the outside lane between the exit and entrance from Hoath Way.

The news of the makeover was well received by local driving instructor Emma Ashley, who said: “They seem to be trying to make the roads more flowing and make it easier to get in and out of Twydall.

“It’s going to change the way we teach it and use it. It’s the right thing to do.”
