Richborough Power Station Demolition

Richborough Power Station cooling towers are to be demolished at 9.00am on Sunday 11th March. This is a demolition and not an event however you may wish to view this historic spectacle from one of the many vantage points around the area.
  • Road closures will be in place on the A256 in the vicinity of the towers for a maximum of 1 hour.
  • There will be no access for through traffic between the north junction with the A256 Sandwich By-pass and the new Sevenscore Roundabout, whilst the works are being carried out.
  • It is suggested that drivers should consider alternative routes, as long delays are expected in the area. A contingency alternative route will be brought in to use if required on the day.
  • Public Footpath EE42 will be closed where it meets the exclusion zone around the works, as indicated by signs and barriers on site.
  • The closure is for the safety of the public during demolition works, being carried out by DDS Demolition.
  • These works are weather dependent, and the timing may be affected by adverse conditions.
  • If conditions prevent the works going ahead on 11 March, they will be deferred until one of the following two Sundays.
  • The roads to be closed are sections of the A256 Ramsgate Road, Sandwich and Sandwich Road & Richborough Way, Ramsgate.
