Gravesend one-way system to change

A major awareness campaign has begun to alert the public to changes to the one-way system in a north Kent town.

The changes to the one-way traffic system in New Road, Gravesend, are due to come into force on 7 March.

In one section of New Road, the one-way system will be reversed, Gravesham council said.

Borough councillor Mike Snelling said: "We are putting major efforts into ensuring the public know the reverse of flow is coming."

Delivery vehicles

He said the changes were another step towards the delivery of a "transport quarter" in the town and the provision of a family-friendly town centre.

Restrictions on all vehicles in New Road between 1000 and 1800 will continue, and access to and from the rest of the pedestrian zone will be unchanged.

Access to the section of New Road between its junctions with Stone Street and Garrick Street will be reversed, so delivery vehicles approach from Darnley Road and leave the area via Stone Street.

The council said it would be writing to all traders in New Road and sending an update to all businesses and taxis in the town.

Leaflets will be given to the general public and also placed on the windscreens of vehicles parking in New Road. Posters will be displayed by businesses and in buses and signs will also be put on lampposts.
