Part of a busy road used by commuters and parents on the school run will close for two weeks.
Lower Rainham Road in Rainham will be shut between Berengrave Lane and West Motney Way from Monday, June 26 to Sunday, July 9.
The works are part of CityFibre’s £40m project to bring faster internet to Medway and will be carried out by construction partner Lanes-i.
The road will be shut to through-traffic but access to properties within the closure will still be available. A diversion route will be put in place.
Pedestrians and cyclists will still have access.
Adrian Smith, CityFibre’s Partnership Manager for Medway, said: “We are investing £40m to deliver a full fibre network that will future-proof Medway’s digital infrastructure for decades to come and would like to thank residents for their patience while we deliver this project.
“As part of these essential digital infrastructure works, we are required to enforce a closure on Lower Rainham Road, between the junction of Berengrave Lane and the junction of Motney Way, for two weeks from 26th June to ensure we adhere to health and safety protocols.
“Our works will then continue in the surrounding areas over the coming months as we install our full fibre network in stages as quickly and efficiently as possible.
“Our team will always be happy to move barriers for resident access when asked and if it’s safe to do so.”
The company, which is the UK's largest open access fibre only operator, builds fibre tracks in entire towns and cities which providers then use to give internet to customers, including homes, businesses, schools, hospitals, and GP surgeries.
It is the latest in a series of closures along Lower Rainham Road. There was traffic chaos in February when it was shut between The Angel pub and the Three Sisters pub.
The section between Station Road and Berengrave Lane has also been closed in recent weeks.
Currently, there is a road closure on Berengrave Lane until June 27.
From July 10 until August 6, there will be a closure further west on Lower Rainham Road, followed by a closure on Lower Bloors Lane from August 7 until August 20.
This will be followed by another closure further west on Lower Rainham Road from August 21 until September 17, and then a closure on Pump Lane from September 18 to October 8.
There has also been work in Station Road.
