Burst water main in Jail Lane

      Comments Off on Burst water main in Jail Lane

Cllr Benington and Cllr Stevens report that there is a burst water main at Jail Lane, Biggin Hill – close to the Charles Darwin School and the road will be closed shortly.
Traffic will be diverted via Main Road, Leaves Green Road, Downe Road, New Road Hill, Rookery Road, High Street Downe, Luxted Road and Single Street in both directions.
We would expect that the road will remain closed over the weekend period and possibly into Tuesday 29/08 too.
The bus route that usually serves Luxted Road, Single Street and Jail Lane will be diverted whilst the closure is in place and will not serve these three streets whilst the closure is in place. TFL have not yet confirmed their diversion but this will be updated onto their website later today. When there have been previous works at this location, the bus has previously circled Downe Village / High Street and then diverts via Leaves Green Road and Main Road for Biggin Hill. We suspect that this will be the likely bus diversion on this occasion too.
If you have any queries, please let them know. A further update will be provided on Tuesday regarding these works.
