Road Improvements

To support Ashford's growth there are plans to improve the capacity of the Motorway junctions and access to them, improve existing road junctions and for better traffic management. Some of the proposals are detailed below.

M20 Junction 10

Work on a £7 million scheme to tackle congestion at junction 10 of the M20 finished in September 2007. In preparation for new development in the area extra lane space is being provided for traffic joining and leaving the M20 motorway at the junction.

For more information on the scheme visit the Highways Agency

M20 Junction 10a

There are proposals for a new junction 10a to the south east of the town connecting with the A2070 via a new dual carriageway road.

M20 Junction 9

Improvements to the capacity and traffic signalling of the junction are proposed. This will include widening the approach roads, and improving the capacity of the Drovers roundabout by enlarging the junction and improving signalling.

A28 Chart Road

There is a proposal to turn the current carriageway between the Tank roundabout and the Brookfield Road roundabout into two lanes each way to improve capacity to and from the south of the town.
