Tommy Deans, south east network manager, said: “These works will improve the existing road drainage system, through pipe repairs and renewing of filter drains, improving the overall highway drainage and creating safer journeys for motorists.

“Lanes closures and temporary traffic lights will be in place so that these improvements can be delivered safely.

“Works have been programmed to take place during night-time hours in order to minimise any disruption.

“We’ll do all we can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible."
