The road is closed near to Shalmsford Street's Premier store while water works are carried out.

One driver told KentOnline: "I've been moving in first gear for 25 minutes - it's never been this bad before."

Drivers can also expect delays along Kingsmead Road due to temporary traffic signals near the Kingsmead Leisure Centre to allow for emergency gas leak repair works.

Bus services are delayed in and around Canterbury as a result.

Motorists were hit by delays yesterday.
