Goudhurst High Street Remains Closed for Maintenance Work

Goudhurst High Street (A262) continues to be inaccessible to traffic in both directions from Smiths Lane to B2079 Balcombes Hill as maintenance work persists. The closure is necessary as electrical crews undertake the installation of a cable in the street, necessitating the closure of a significant portion of the road.

Specialist teams have been deployed to dig a large hole in the road and make the necessary connections to the network, all while the electrical system remains live. This complex operation requires meticulous attention to safety protocols to ensure the well-being of both workers and the public.
