Granville Road, Sheerness, will be closed next week while Kent Highways repairs potholes

By Lewis Dyson

A pothole laden road is to be closed next week for repairs.

Earlier this month we reported how white markings had been painted around the worst affected areas of Granville Road, Sheerness, with numbers going up to 23 sprayed alongside them.

Notices were put up on the 320-metre street last week to notify residents that the road will be shut so that the weather damage can be fixed.

Repairs are planned from Tuesday, May 6, to Friday, May 9, along the whole length, during which time vehicles are required to be parked elsewhere.

From May 6 to Thursday May 8, work will also be carried out on four broken kerbs near the Rose Street side of the road.

Kent’s Find and Fix pothole repair campaign was given £8.6 million by the government after the county council lobbied for funding to repair weather-damaged roads.

The county-wide initiative aims to get an average turnaround of 13 days from reporting to fixing and make permanent first-time fixes.
