The section between Honey Hall Lane and Nye Road will be closed for two days on Monday 29 and Tuesday 30 June for path improvements – widening the path and laying a completely new limestone dust surface. There will be a signposted diversion via Honey Hall Lane, Brinsea Batch, King Road, Church Lane, Churchill Green and Sandmead Road, re-joining Nye Road.
During the rest of the week there will be pothole repairs from Honey Hall Lane north to the A370 – this section will be open for use, but users are asked to follow signs and contractors’ instructions for personal safety.
The work is being carried out by MP & KM Golding Road Reclamation and this work is part of an ongoing maintenance arrangement. The council has been able to extend the works following the assistance and co-operation of Thatcher’s Cider which owns part of the section that will be widened and improved during the closure.
The council also wants to say a big thank you to the Strawberry Line Sustrans Volunteer Rangers who will be signposting the diversionary route organised by their new co-ordinator Adrian Read.
