Maidstone drivers urged to be aware of ongoing roadworks

Kent County Council is warning drivers to Maidstone this weekend to plan their journeys and be aware there may be delays.

Work continues at pace on the Maidstone Bridges improvement scheme, having started on June 6.

Following last weekend’s delays around the Fremlin Walk car park, KCC is advising motorists to be aware that the roadworks are still in place and journey times may be longer than usual.

There was no change to the work schedule that weekend compared to previous weekends.


Kent Highways will be ensuring the traffic lights around the gyratory system and being controlled in the most effective manner to keep down any potential delays and ensure Maidstone can remain open for business.

Work on the third phase of the Maidstone gyratory system improvement works begins on Monday, October 3.

Due to the deep excavation required, it will be necessary for lane closures to remain in place between Monday October 3 and Wednesday, October 5 during both peak and off peak periods.

This is to allow the alterations on Bishops Way at the junction with the High Street to be carried out.

Works will be carried out during both day and night to minimise the impact.

Delays are anticipated and Kent County Council apologises in advance.

Further information is available via a dedicated page at and on Twitter @MaidstoneBridges

As has been the cause during the first phase, the majority of lanes will remain open during the peak periods to reduce delays.

Completion remains on track for November.
