From 20 August 2016, Highways England is closing the Tonbridge Road between the A21 and Tunbridge Wells Hospital to facilitate the construction of the Longfield road junction. The roadworks are expected to last for at least six months.
This means there will be no access to the hospital from the A21 Longfield Road roundabout. There will also be no right turn out of the hospital towards the A21. Access to the hospital will only be possible via the A228 and Pembury end of the Tonbridge Road.
Patients and visitors to Tunbridge Wells Hospital are advised to leave plenty of time for their journeys, with possible delays expected getting to and from the hospital. Highways England is advising drivers to allow an extra 10 to 15 minutes for their journey.
Highways England has a 24 hour helpline number for more information on the roadworks – 0300 123 5000. In addition, you can check their web site at: www.highways.gov.uk/traffic-information/ or sign up to receive email alerts.
