 Re surfacing night work at Thornton’s Corner, week beginning 20th November for potentially 5 nights.

As the town centre improvements continue, please do be aware that overnight resurfacing work will be taking place on Monday 20th November. As before this night work will start at 8 p.m. and could continue until 3a.m on the morning of 26th November. The work will initially consist of the existing road surface being taken or ‘planed’ off, with a new surface then re-laid, with the ‘planing’ being the noisier element.

We anticipate all noisy work to be completed by midnight, with only deliveries after that.

To facilitate this work, the junctions of Manor Road and Kelsey Park Road with The High Street, will be closed from 8:00pm.The High Street from The War Memorial to the crossroads with Manor Road and Kelsey Park Road (Thornton’s Corner) will also be closed. The road will re-open from 5:00am on all of the given dates.

There will be diversions signs in place to aid traffic flow.

Residents with permitted parking, which is accessed via The High Street, who wish to access or exit their space after, 08:00pm on any of these given days, apart from 26th November, should contact me on Mobile Tel 07917 518 529 Or email Beckenham@fmconway.co.uk

As this is a major road, which is extremely busy in the daytime, there is no option but to carry out this work at night but we are mindful of local residents and the impact on town centre visitors and businesses. Be assured that we will keep noise to a minimum as far as possible and we do apologise for any inconvenience or disturbance in advance during this period.

At the end of the night work, the road surface along this stretch of The High Street will have been greatly improved from the current condition, with the overall town centre improvement initiative making Beckenham a more attractive and safer place for residents, visitors and businesses.
