In­va­sion threat stalled by­pass work

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points of view -

With ref­er­ence to last week’s Re­mem­ber When col­umn, about the con­struc­tion of the Ash­ford by­pass/M20, it was built be­fore the last war – but owing to the threat of in­va­sion the ends were never joined up. Per­haps in your ar­chives there is a photo taken by a Ger­man plane dur­ing the war show­ing it in iso­la­tion. As you point out, it wasn’t un­til 1957 that it was brought up to re­quired stan­dards and opened up com­pletely. Christo­pher Wood Shore­ham Lane, St Michaels, Ten­ter­den
