Dartford Council are warning residents of potentially noisy works being carried out at Dartford Junction next weekend.

Network Rail will be undertaking essential works at Dartford Junction from between midnight and 6am on September 1.

These works will involve the use of a variety of equipment including small plant, tools, generators, site lighting and some larger plant including an engineering train.

A spokesperson for Dartford Council has said: "Under their licence conditions they are contractually obliged to work at times that cause the least disruption to train services.

"This means work will often happen during the night and at weekends.

"The equipment they use means some disturbance is unavoidable, but they have assured us they will make every effort to minimise any unnecessary noise.

"They apologise for any inconvenience these essential works may cause, if you have any questions or concerns, please visit Network Rail or telephone the 24-Hour National Helpline on 03457 11 41 41."
