Multiple Road Traffic Collisions Cause Major Disruption on A249 in Sittingbourne

Kent Police Swale, specifically the Local Policing Team 1 (LPT1), is currently responding to two separate road traffic collisions (RTCs) that have occurred on both carriageways of the A249 near Sittingbourne. These incidents have resulted in significant disruptions in the area, prompting Police to urge motorists to exercise caution, particularly in adverse weather conditions.

The RTCs took place on the A249, a major road artery in Kent, causing diversions and traffic congestion in the Sittingbourne vicinity. While the collisions have led to substantial traffic disruption, there is some relief in that reports indicate only minor injuries have been sustained by those involved.

Local authorities and emergency services have taken immediate action to address the incidents and manage traffic diversions, ensuring the safety and well-being of all affected parties. Motorists are strongly advised to adhere to safety protocols, adjust their driving speed according to the road conditions, and exercise caution while navigating the area.

Police encourage all road users to remain vigilant, obey speed limits, and avoid the “Fatal Four” behaviours that commonly contribute to road accidents: speeding, impaired or reckless driving, not wearing seatbelts, and using mobile devices while operating a vehicle. These measures are essential in promoting road safety and preventing accidents.

Kent Police Swale continues to monitor the situation and coordinate efforts to manage the traffic disruptions caused by the RTCs on the A249. Road users are urged to stay informed about updates related to the incidents and to exercise patience and caution when travelling through the affected area.

As investigations into the RTCs are ongoing, anyone with information or who may have witnessed the collisions is encouraged to contact the Kent Police at the non-emergency number 101. Providing valuable information can assist in the comprehensive examination of the incidents and contribute to road safety efforts in the region.
