Lane restrictions at Rochester Bridge

Essential road repairs will lead to two overnight lane closures on and near Rochester Bridge this week.

On the night of Tuesday, 17 February, part of the Esplanade adjacent to Castle Hill corner will be closed. Then on Wednesday, 18 February, one lane of Rochester New Bridge will be closed.

In order to minimise disruption to traffic, each lane closure will run from 8:00pm until 6:00am.


1. The Rochester Bridge Trust is a charitable trust that exists to maintain the old and new bridges at Rochester and serve the travelling public. It is the only surviving bridge trust still serving its original purpose, and it has served the people of Kent since 1399. The Trust also supports numerous community and education projects across historic Kent and Medway.

2. The Trust’s assets all derive from endowments of land and money in the 14th and 15th centuries and are carefully managed in order to provide an income to fund bridge maintenance and local charitable grants. The Trust receives no external funding and is regulated by the Charity Commission.
