Drains, diversions and permits

Drainage works throughout August, disruptive but necessary

If, like me, you live in Rye, you may well have received a letter from Highways England in today’s (Tuesday 27 July) post updating local residents on the continued and necessary drainage works which started on Monday, July 26 and are to continue throughout August.

The section of road is the A259 between the now infamous Skinners roundabout and the roundabout at the Kettle O’ Fish.

Rather than reinvent the wheel and rewrite the letter received, I have reproduced it verbatim which tells us everything we need to know and interestingly, on the reverse, in red, is a resident pass for escort provision which we can either display in our vehicles or show a copy on our phone to the traffic management operatives which, when we do, will enable us to be escorted through the road closure.

The red residents permit should help to minimise disruption if you are a local.

This facility applies to local residents, businesses, relevant car park permit holders, also access for emergency services will be maintained throughout the period.

With all this joined up thinking, hopefully the inevitable disruption will be reduced to a minimum, for locals at least.
