Improvements on the road

Plans are being devised to improve the A2 at Ebbsfleet Garden City, Highways England has announced.

The governmental organisation will start public consultation on improvements to the highway at Bean and Ebbsfleet in January 2017.

The scheme is part of a £15 billion investment in roads by the government, which will see junction upgrades linked to local growth plans.

Ken Simmonds, regional director for major projects in the south-east, invited residents to “get involved and give us their views”.

Further details on the consultation will be announced soon.
