M20 Junction 10A

M20 Junction 10A

The M20 is an international route and is used by large volumes of heavy goods and holiday traffic. Long distance traffic from the M20, A20 and A2070 (south of Ashford) conflicts with local traffic from Hythe Road and Kennington Road.

The scheme to improve the M20 by constructing a new junction, 700 metres south east of junction 10. The new junction 10A will include a roundabout over the motorway, new slip roads and a new link road to the A2070, with traffic signals on parts of the junction and two 3 lane bridges. The scheme includes the removal of the east facing slip roads at the existing junction 10 and the construction of new pedestrian and cycle bridge over the M20 from Kingsford Street to the A20, demolishing the existing Highfield Lane Bridge.

The A20 Hythe Road will also be incorporated in the new junction so that the traffic in both directions will travel via the new roundabout.
