The project consists of multiple sites: Phase one consisting of fifty five (55) urban and rural sites across Kent within Lot 1 & Lot 2. The works at each site will generally entail the cold milling of the existing surface and repaving with a binder course of AC or SMA and a surface course of HRA, TCSC or SMA. All sites will include adjustments to covers and replacement of road markings and road studs where required.
Sites approaching traffic signals may require the replacement of the traffic loops. Some sites will require the application of High Friction Surfacing. Many sites will require road closures and night time working. Working restrictions will be in place on many sites with defined times.
Kent County Council will be operating under the Traffic Management Act and a Permitting Scheme so the Works Programme will need to comply with noticing requirements and any constraints imposed by the Roadworks Teams.

Should the contract be extended for a further year to the contractors, then Phase 1 in year two will start from July 2013, as per the extension.
