Swanley TC

Highlands Hill, Swanley

This is to inform you that following on from our carriageway surface treatment earlier this year Kent County Council will be carrying out adjustment of ironwork (manholes and gully gratings) on Highlands Hill, between its junctions with School Lane and Beechenlea Lane.

Work is due to start on Wednesday 28th June and is expected to last for 3 days.

During these essential works, it will be necessary to close Highlands Hill so that we can carry out the works safely for both the workforce and road users.

Works will take place between the hours of 08:00hrs and 17:00hrs, and the road will be re-opened when it is safe to do so, but it is inevitable that residents and businesses near the works will experience minor disruption, and we aim to keep this to a minimum.

Access to properties within the site will be maintained at all times although vehicle access to individual properties may be restricted for short periods whilst work is carried out.

If you have any particular access requirements, please let the workforce on site know or call us on the number provided below.

A signed diversion route will be in place during the closure via Highlands Hill, B258, B2173 and Beechenlea Lane.

What you can do to help
We need your help to make sure the work is done as quickly as possible.

If your vehicle is usually parked on the carriageway, please could you make sure you park it somewhere else away from the site whilst the works are being carried out.

Please respect our workers space and safety by driving carefully and slowly near where we are working.

Feedback from our workers shows that too many drivers drive too fast.

Our crews work next to moving traffic and risk injury every day, everyone is entitled to a safe workplace.

Swanley Park activities

Swanley Park is a beautifully undulating 60 acre park located between Swanley and Hextable which provides the biggest green lung of the parish and is one of the most popular and well used parks in the region.

The facilities have been developed over the last 30 years and the park is the envy of many other local authorities.

It attracts visitors from a wide area and is maintained to the highest standard by the excellent parks department.

Five separate parcels of land were originally acquired.

These areas had earlier been used for a variety of purposes one was part of a disused horticultural college, another area was an orchard and there were some old redundant buildings of a defunct farm.

The large boating lake that is so well established is man-made, which comes as a surprise to many people who believe it is a natural feature of the park.

More recent additions to the park are the paddling pool and watersplash area plus sand play and family enclosure where young children can play in safety.

Older children can use up their energy nearby at the large, well equipped play area including swings, climbing frame and a zip wire.
