Time for some answers has come
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.
