Gas company SGN is carrying out emergency repairs to the gas main in Marine Terrace, Margate, just outside Dreamland, meaning the road is closed both ways.
A spokesperson said: “For everyone’s safety, we need to temporarily close Marine Terrace both ways. A signed diversion will be in place for motorists via Belgrave Road, Ramsgate Road, Margate Road, Park Road, A299 Canterbury Road and the A28.
“It’s too early to say how long our repairs will take to complete at this stage, but we’ll be working around the clock and through the night to complete our work as quickly as possible.”
Was there not another gas leak just up the road in November ? Maybe a lot needs replacing .
Thanks Paul, I’ll crack on and do that.
Was a joke along there yesterday over 35 mins to get from seabathing to Cecil sq . If it was that serious they should have shut it sooner instead of traffic lights .
Should have shut rd straight away instead of causing major delays by using traffic lights
Or just loop around Hartsdown Park. Much quicker than the ridiculous diversion they have put in place.
To add to the problem, the signs along Belgrave Road are telling people the road is only closed between 8pm and 5am so everyone is turning left out of Belgrave Road and then realising the road is closed and having to turn round in the middle of the road.
