Work continues at Maidstone medical campus

Thursday 11th August 2016

Work on a new access road to Kent Medical Campus in Maidstone.

When complete, the 30-acre site will be the county’s first Academic, Health and Science Centre (AHSC), with claims it could create 4,000 jobs. 

Work began at the end of July on the £1.5m, 330m long access road, which will run from Newnham Court Way to the far side of the KMC site.

“We will be working hard to keep disturbance to local residents and road users to a minimum,” said Gary Watson of JLL, sole selling agent for the site.


“The contractors have set up a wheel wash to clean lorries before they leave the site and regular sweeping will clear up any dust or soil that does find its way onto local roads”.


Granted Enterprise Zone status by the Government last autumn, the 30-acre site is located at Junction 7 of the M20. The first phase is the recently‐opened Kent Institute of Medicine and Surgery (KIMS), the 92 bed independent hospital.
