A28 Chart Road Improvement 3 July 2017
Widening of the A28 Chart Road in Ashford to provide a dual two-lane road between the Tank Roundabout at Carlton Road and the Matalan Roundabout at the B2229 Brookfield Road. The A28 north from the Tank Roundabout to the M20 already has two lanes in each direction and this section, connecting that dual carriageway to the Great Chart Bypass, is now a bottleneck.
The scheme will see a second bridge across the railway to carry southbound traffic, some turns in and out of side roads prohibited, and improvements to the roundabouts at each end and to the junction of Loudon Way.
A28 Sturry Link Road 4 January 2016
Construction of a new single two-lane road to bypass the level crossing at Sturry where the A28 crosses the Canterbury-Ramsgate railway line.
The new road will allow through traffic to avoid delays caused by the level crossing and will open up land to the west of Sturry to new development, where Kent County Council expects the construction of up to 1,000 new houses.
At the eastern end of the new road, a short spur will connect to the A291.
