Lack of fore­sight adds to prob­lems

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Lorries Slowly Destroying Grade Ii Listed Home -

The reg­u­lar­ity of crashes and in­ci­dents on the M20 caus­ing lengthy de­lays con­tin­ues.

The ma­jor­ity of them, not sur­pris­ingly, are con­nected with lor­ries mainly of for­eign ori­gin. Per­haps the person who mon­i­tors these ac­ci­dents would let read­ers know the num­ber in­volv­ing lor­ries, for­eign or oth­er­wise, against cars and vans.

If, when the M20 route was planned, why on earth another junc­tion with ser­vices, was not made at Char­ing or Len­ham. whereby traf­fic could be di­verted to ei­ther the A20 or the A252 / 251 to­wards the M2, I do not know. A pure lack of fore­sight.

In the mean­time, the amount of heavy traf­fic con­tin­ues. It is not too late for an im­prove­ment and more im­por­tantly much more ur­gent than spend­ing money erect­ing junc­tion 10a on the A20!

Also, can some­one ex­plain why the so-called traf­fic con­trollers in black and yel­low Range Rovers never seem to be around when these in­ci­dents oc­cur?

I thought they were in­tro­duced to get traf­fic mov­ing more quickly in­stead of wait­ing for po­lice to or­gan­ise and take ac­tion. Tony Newport, Stowt­ing
