    Please note: Properties and businesses located in the vicinity of the A120 between Panners Interchange and Marks Farm Roundabout may experience construction noise during the works from Monday 24 April.

Project information


Work on the this stretch of road includes barrier replacement, signage renewal, resurfacing, road studs, road lining placement and other safety improvements. The work here is essential, will contribute to the life expectancy of the road and make journeys safer for motorists. 

We’ll make the most of these closures by carrying out as much work as possible. This will prevent the need for further closures in the near future.

Road users will benefit from a new central reservation safety barrier from Panners interchange to Marks Farm as well as some new signs. There will also be a new road surface on the eastbound side from Panners to Galleys Corner with new road marking and studs to improve reflectivity and visibility.
