News, road works

Lady Wakehurst Drive closed to traffic next week

MOTORISTS are advised of the closure of Lady Wakehurst Drive between McKell Avenue and Otford Road for maintenance work next week.

The road will be closed in both directions between 8am and 3pm from Tuesday September 8 to Wednesday September 9, weather permitting.

Maintenance work includes general maintenance, trimming vegetation and clearing gutters and drains to improve safety for motorists.

Detours will be in place via McKell Avenue, the M1 Princes Motorway and Lawrence Hargrave Drive and are expected to add about 10 minutes to journeys.

Commuters using Otford Railway Station will need to park on the western side of the station, or use the pedestrian access from Station Road on the eastern side of the station.

Access on foot to Otford Lookout and walking tracks and beaches in the Royal National Park will not be affected by the closure. Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions, and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
