‘ upgrade roads’
KCC also calls for the government to invest in improvements to key roads and junctions to cope with rising traffic levels.
Among them are recommendations to upgrade the M2 to a “smart” motorway - meaning drivers could use the hard shoulder during busy periods - and up-grading the remaining section of the A2 from Canterbury to Dover.
The report adds: “KCC calls on government to further investigate the potential for constructing a network of lorry parks and consider incorporating overnight parking capacity within new plans for an Operation Stack lorry area.”
The report was due to be considered at a meeting of KCC’s transport committee yesterday (Wednesday).
