There will be road Works on Single Street and Luxted Road in the near future. Details provided from our Councillors below –
Single Street, Biggin Hill
The first closure will be Single Street, Biggin Hill starting on Thursday 08/10/2015. The road is expected to be closed until Monday 12/10/2015 and there will be local diversions in place.
The works are drainage works to install a new soakaway system. I’ve attached a map highlighting the ‘Section Closed’ and access will be available to residents on either side of the closure point.
The road will be closed to through traffic for the duration of works. Once works have been completed at Single Street, the works will move to Luxted Road, Downe.
Luxted Road, Downe
Luxted Road, Downe is expected to be closed from Monday 12/10/2015 until Monday 19/10/2015 and there will be local diversions in place.
The works are drainage works installing a new soakaway system outside Luxted Farm (close to the junction with Bird House Lane).
Residents wanting to gain access to Bird House Lane will need to travel from the Downe Village end of Luxted Road.
The road will be closed to through traffic for the duration of works.
Buses will NOT serve Jail Lane, Single Street or Luxted Road whilst these closures are in place. The R8 will still serve Downe Village, then will be diverted around the War Memorial, back up the High Street, Rookery Road, New Road Hill, Downe Road, Leaves Green Road, Main Road where it will continue its route into Biggin Hill. Bus route 146 will be unaffected during the works.
Advanced warning signs have been displayed on site at Single Street warning motorists of the closure and apparently immediate residents that are affected by the closures have been letter dropped. A representative will be attending the local schools on Monday to advise them of the works.
