Making Maidstone even better!

There are many transport improvements both under construction or undergoing design work, helping to maintain and enhance accessibility to and within Kent and Medway. These include an improved motorway junction at Ashford, the third Thames Crossing and improvements at the Bean junction near Bluewater and Ebbsfleet Garden City, to name but a few.

But in June 2016, a new scheme will get underway that will make getting into and through Maidstone, Kent’s county town, much easier.

The scheme will see changes to traffic flows over the two Maidstone Bridges which means that traffic coming into Maidstone from the south on the A229 and A274 will not have to negotiate the bridges to continue down the A229 to the M20, M2 and North Kent.

This will be accomplished by making part of the gyratory system, now one way, two way.

A local contractor, Jackson Civil Engineering has been appointed to carry out the work on this KCC managed project. Being a local contractor, they are very conscious of the need to keep traffic moving throughout the period of the scheme which will take as much advantage as possible of the longer days and school holidays bringing lighter traffic. The scheme will commence on 6 June and finish in November, during which it will definitely be business as usual in the town.

During the contract period there will be no major roadworks permitted in the Borough – another bonus for local road users.
