Three weeks of road works being carried out to reduce number of casualties

Thursday 11th October 2018

KENT County Council (KCC) have announced three weeks of road works that will be carried out to further safety improvements on the A20.

Work will be carried out on the A20 Ashford Road and Faversham Road crossroads to install new safety improvements such as a new traffic island, new solar powered bollards, extending footways and visibilities for pedestrians and new additional signage, which includes an interactive sign warning drivers to slow down.  

The work being carried out will last for three weeks, starting from October 15, with working hours between 7am and 5pm but excluding weekends.

Four way temporary traffic signals will be places at the crossroads as work is being carried out.

KCC stated the reason for the work to be carried out in a press release that said: “We are aware of a number of crashes occurring at this junction and these measures are designed to reduce the risk of them recurring and will contribute to our aim to reduce the number of casualties on Kent roads.”
