‘ up­grade roads’

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Operation Stack -

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).
