‘We expect no disruption’
Pilgrims Hospices is reassuring people who use its services before work starts on junction 10a of the M20. The works will create a new junction so the existing A20 Hythe Road has to be altered from the entrance of the hospice to the new junction at Highfield Lane.
Shirley Clark, marketing and communications co-ordinator at Pilgrims Hospices, said: “This will mean work going on close to the location of the hospice.
“Pilgrims and Highways England have been working together since January to ensure the works can be carried out with minimal disruption and keeping the hospice operational.
“We expect there to be no disruption to the running of normal hospice services.”
Work is set to start early next year.
