Bringing Cleaner Air to West Kent via Growth without Gridlock

HIGHWAYS ENGLAND Consultation into the Strategic Road Network commencing NOW. This is our Golden Opportunity to let Government know how important it is for West Kent to have full connectivity between the A21 & M26, and with the National Motorway Network in the vicinity of Junction 5 Sevenoaks. Take National Traffic and Air Pollution out of our villages

East facing sliproads on the M25 near Sevenoaks would bring:

  1. Economic Benefits: growth in North West Kent is inhibited by lack of connectivity to the Nation Motorway Network
  2. A25 Traffic. Using the M26 as an East-West trunk route would divert long distance traffic around East Sevenoaks, Seal, Borough Green and Platt
  3. Rural Traffic. Slips would allow traffic from Sussex and South West Kent to access Maidstone, Medway and the Channel ports without rat-running through rural Kent, relieving villages like Matfield, Paddock Wood, Wateringbury , Barming and West Malling.
  4. Air Quality. All the above would reduce traffic impact, and lower pollution in the existing Air Quality Management Areas like Sevenoaks, Borough Green, Wateringbury and the A20 corridor.
