A249

M2 J5 Improvements 4 July 2017

Improvements to M2 junction 5 (Stockbury) which is a major interchange with the A249. At present the junction suffers regular congestion, particularly on the A249 southbound and the exit from the M2 westbound, and has an extremely poor safety record. It forms a break in the otherwise free-flowing A249 between Maidstone and Sheppey. Planned developments in the area will put further pressure on the junction.

A249 Swale Bridge - Sheerness 26 October 2008

Construction of a new dual two-lane route to carry the A249 from the current end of the dual carriageway to Sheerness. It includes provision of a viaduct across The Swale to replace the existing lifting bridge which causes severe delays. The route will be grade separated at the Iwade roundabout, with a larger roundabout at the scheme's southern terminus on the existing dual carriageway at Cowstead.
