Time for some an­swers has come

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

THE ques­tion on most mo­torists’ mouths is to be put to road chiefs to­day (Thurs­day).

Bor­ough and county coun­cil­lor Ge­orge Koowa­ree is ex­pect­ing an­swers when he asks what will hap­pen to the Junc­tion 10 round­about when the road­works are com­pleted next month.

The ques­tion will be put to Kent County Coun­cil cabi­net mem­ber for the en­vi­ron­ment and high­ways Keith Fer­rin at a full meet­ing of KCC.

He said: “I want to know whether they will be sup­port­ing the pa­per’s cam­paign.”

“My gut feel­ing is that they will say the traf­fic lights are there for safety rea­sons and not for keep­ing the traf­fic flow­ing.

“I would like to see sta­tis­tics to sup­port this.

“I use the junc­tion and it has been mov­ing much smoother with­out the lights.

“Peo­ple are self-polic­ing and be­ing more cau­tious.”

Our on­line pe­ti­tion to back the Keep Junc­tion 10 Mov­ing cam­paign has now topped the 1,000 mark.

The High­ways Agency has said it will be meet­ing with the Ken­tish Ex­press in the near fu­ture when a de­ci­sion on the lights has been reached.
