Yester Road was closed after the morning rush hour

Chislehurst motorists are set to face more than a week of disruption due to emergency gas repair works.

SGN has been carrying out urgent repairs to a 27inch gas main under the railway bridge on Yester Road since Wednesday following a gas leak.

Three-way traffic lights were put in place at the junctions with Sundridge Avenue and Lubbock Road.

From 10am today (Thursday) Yester Road will have to be closed from both sides of the bridge, as deep excavations will be needed to continue the repair.

There will be a signed diversion in place for motorists in the town via Walden Road and Elmstead Lane.

A spokesperson from SGN said: “All being well, we hope to have completed a permanent repair by the end of next week.”
