Dyers Lane,Dover’s Hill Road Closure

Temporary Traffic Order to close the road for carriageway patching.

3/116 Dyers Lane and Dovers Hill – see overleaf for details of road closure.

For approximately 5 days between the hours 07:00 to 17:00.

The PLANNED start and end dates are currently Monday 27th April to Friday 1st May 2020, however keep an eye on the signs on site for any short notice changes.

Our patching programme is dependent on several factors. It can be affected by things like; heavy rain, changes in temperatures and other weather events as well as plant breakdown and unforeseen technical issues that arise once work has begun. All this means scheme dates and details can change at short notice. We appreciate this is inconvenient, and we will keep our social media feeds updated with more details if changes happen.

You can find the most up to date patching scheme start and end dates and more information about this scheme on our:

    We will be patching the road at the above location as part of our promise to invest £150 million in the county’s roads. To ensure the safety of you and our work force we have, under Sections 14, 15 & 16 of the Road Traffic Act 1984 as amended, made a Temporary Traffic Order to close the road.

    Due to the type of engineering activities required with carriageway patching, the road closure can cover an area greater than the area being patched. This is to allow activities, such as movement and placement of machinery and material.

    We appreciate road closures are inconvenient, but in order to keep you and the team working on the road safe it is necessary. We have planned the work so we can be in and out as quickly as possible and have tried to do it at a time that will minimise any inconvenience.


    In accordance with the Temporary Traffic Order, we are not permitted to allow any person or vehicle to proceed along the closed roads; with the exception of pedestrian access to properties, emergency vehicles, and statutory undertakers responding to an emergency situation.

Therefore, if you normally drive into or out of this area during the hours when the road closure is in place, we ask you to please make alternative arrangements.

In exceptional circumstances, some level of access may be considered. This will be on a case by case basis and only where it doesn’t impact on our ability to carry out the work and where it is safe to do so. Any access during this time would be at the drivers own risk as it is a works site and may have raised iron works or a temporary surface.


We have created an official diversion route which will be signposted and is suitable for all vehicles that would normally use the closed road. We appreciate you may know an alternative route, however please be aware alternative routes which are outside of the road closure area are used at driver’s discretion.
