On the move?

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

SCHEMES to end the town’s lorry night­mare and speed up traf­fic are set to take a ma­jor step for­ward.

The hunt is on to find a site for a new lorry park to stop for­eign trucks blight­ing Or­bital Park.

A plan to re­place the con­tro­ver­sial Op­er­a­tion Stack on the M20 is set to be un­veiled by the county coun­cil.

The con­struc­tion of a new junc­tion on the mo­tor­way is ap­proved, de­spite costs rock­et­ing from £45mil­lion to £56 mil­lion.

Fund­ing for a new multi-mil­lion pound rapid bus sys­tem to link new out­ly­ing hous­ing de­vel­op­ments and em­ploy­ment sites to the town cen­tre gets the go-ahead.
