M20 Junc­tion 10 road­works

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

I use this round­about al­most ev­ery day and I’ve been amazed at how easy it is to get round now that there are no lights, es­pe­cially at peak times on the week­end, it’s bril­liant. Even though it’s at the end of my road, I had stopped us­ing it ex­cept when es­sen­tial and used junc­tion 9, which is the long way round. It would be very poor traf­fic man­age­ment to put the lights back, stu­pid­ity in fact. Phoebe Ash­worth, Ash­ford.

Hav­ing used the junc­tion over the years, I have found it works a lot bet­ter with­out the lights. Also, it will save money – no lights, no elec­tric­ity be­ing used, works out cheaper in the long run. Also, bet­ter move­ment of traf­fic means that am­bu­lances us­ing it will have an eas­ier run through to the William Har­vey hospi­tal. Chris Burgess, Ten­ter­den.

Since the re­moval of the traf­fic lights, Junc­tion 10 has been bet­ter than it ever was. I’d say that nine times out of 10 you can pass through the junc­tion swiftly. With the lights, it was two times out of 10! Julie Miller, Hythe.

Please con­sider keep­ing the traf­fic lights in­ac­tive. At least to see how the new fin­ished con­struc­tion of Junc­tion 10 copes with­out them. Jon Budd, Ash­ford.

We can all drive sen­si­bly with­out the lights telling us when to go. We do have brains. Jane Humphrey, Ash­ford.

Junc­tion 10 works a lot bet­ter with­out the lights. This is help­ing the en­vi­ron­ment in a small way as the traf­fic isn’t sit­ting around with en­gines run­ning. Ann Burgess, Ten­ter­den.
