Travel disruption as snow falls overnight

West Kent’s roads have felt the effects of ‘the beast from the east’ this morning, as the Met Office has issued Amber National Severe Weather Warnings across the UK.

In addition to closures on Frant Road, drivers in Tunbridge Wells are abandoning cars on High Brooms Road and Highfield Road, while the A26 London Road and St Johns Road has slow-moving traffic in both directions, between Frant Road and Bidborough Ridge.

In Pembury, there is slow-moving traffic on the A228 Colts Hill in both directions, between Alders Road/Crittenden Road crossroads and A21/A264.

Over in Hawkhurst, meanwhile, there is slow-moving traffic on the A229 Cranbrook Road, heading northbound away from the Hawkhurst Crossroads.

As for public transport, Southeastern Railway is running a normal timetable with some cancellations, but Arriva Buses have announced that no buses are running in Tunbridge Wells or Sevenoaks.
