Detours in place for Otford road closure

MOTORISTS are advised of the closure of Lady Wakehurst Drive between McKell Avenue and Otford Lookout next week for maintenance work to be carried out.

The road will be closed in both directions between 8am and 3pm from Tuesday, August 31 to Thursday, September 2, weather permitting.

Work will include general maintenance, guardrail repairs, trimming vegetation and clearing gutters and drains to improve safety for road users.

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.
