Wye level crossing closure to cause diversions and traffic in Ashford

Motorists will face delays and a diversion of almost 10 miles when a busy level crossing is closed for maintenance this weekend.

Kent County Council will close the level crossing in Wye near Ashford "to allow level crossing maintenance and other associated works to be carried out".

The closure, which will be in place for the entirety of Sunday, is likely to affect traffic around the William Harvey Hospital, which is on the official diversion route.

The full timing of the works is between 11pm on Saturday night through to 4am on Monday morning.

During that time, there will be no direct access between the A28 and Wye.

An alternative route is to take Harville Road to the A28, before heading south and on to the A2070 through Willesborough Lees, turning left on to The Street (Willesborough) near the William Harvey Hospital.

Then follow the road up past Hinxhill, joining Oxenturn Road back into Wye.

On site arrangements will be in place for any pedestrians unable to use the footbridge.
