COUNTY SHOW: Special road restrictions in place, July 6-8
Friday 6th July 2018
THE Kent County Show gets underway this morning and will attract tens of thousands of visitors from across the country over its three days.
But organisers have warned motorists to be aware of restrictions in place while the event is being staged, especially on the A249.
On the mornings of the show, a southbound lane of the A249 is to be closed off with temporary traffic lights on the northbound carriageway.
This will allow show-bound traffic easier and safe right-turn access into the showgrounds.
There is a 50mph speed limit on the A249 over the three days with crossover closures in places.
And in the evenings, there will be a set of temporary lights at the showgrounds' main and field exit.
Additionally, as attendees leave Detling, the traffic lights at the Stockbury roundabout will be switched off on the M2.
Kent County Show is open from 8am to 6pm every day.
