Highways England will start a public consultation on its plans for improvements to the A2 at Ebbsfleet Garden City in January.

Seven schemes, part of the Government’s £15bn investment in roads, will be carried out to improve roads including the A2, which will see further junction upgrades linked to local growth plans.

In January Highways England will start its consultation on improvements to the A2 at Bean and Ebbsfleet in the vicinity of the Garden City.

Regional Director for Major Projects in the South East, Ken Simmonds, said: “These improvements, which are being made possible by the Government’s record £15 billion investment in major roads, will help drivers who make up the 237 million journeys on these sections of road every year.

“Each scheme has been developed by working with local partners and now you can have your say. I encourage anyone with an interest in these roads – whether they drive on them, live near them or depend on them for trade – to get involved and give us their views.”

Further details of the consultation will be announced soon.
