Lane restrictions and army training on Rochester’s bridges

Motorists are advised there will be temporary lane closures on the bridges at Rochester overnight during the week beginning 25th September.

This is to enable essential works to take place and, on Tuesday, 26th September, to facilitate a training exercise by the Royal School of Military Engineering (RSME).

The works are part of a routine cleaning programme, and will be carried out by FM Conway on behalf of the Rochester Bridge Trust. The training is a mock demolition conducted by officers participating in the Royal Engineer Troop Commanders’ Course (RETCC).

Alternating single lane closures will be required on both bridges throughout the week. The traffic management is scheduled to run overnight from approximately 9pm until 5am, in order to minimise disruption to road-users.
