Clearly signed diversions will be in place during all closures, utilising local routes and suitable for all types of vehicles, when full closures of the carriageway are in place.
South Diversion Route
A21 heading south - traffic wishing to travel along the A21 will be diverted at John's Cross roundabout to follow the A2100 through to Baldslow, where traffic can re-join the A21.
