Works taking place to repair a gas main leak on Margate’s Marine Terrace are listed to be carried out until January 19.
Gas company SGN is digging up the road to carry out gas pipe repairs for at least the third time in six months.
Temporary lights are in place to control traffic but this has been causing congestion this morning (January 12) with queues stretching from Margate Winter Gardens to the lights on the seafront and again up as far as Garlinge, where Westfield Avenue at the double roundabout is also undergoing works to fix a sinkhole.
Repairs on the gas main on Marine Terrace have previously taken place in January and last July. The road also had traffic controls between March and May last year due to filming of the Empire of Light movie.
SGN will also be closing the A254 Ramsgate Road between January 16 and March 10 for gas main replacement works. Diversions will be put in place.
