A vital transportation artery that promotes community growth

The A228 road is an important transportation artery in Kent, England—it serves existing communities and promotes the expansion of future housing developments and commercial enterprises. Because of this, the road needed to be upgraded to lessen anticipated traffic congestion. We stepped in to help.

For this project, we supported Kent County Council through a successful planning application, securing funding, and a compulsory purchase order enquiry. We coordinated the environmental impact assessment and prepared the environmental statement, including prediction of noise and air quality effects, route evaluation studies, traffic study and economic assessments.

Following planning approval, we were appointed as engineering consultant to undertake the detailed design of the works, including highways, civil structures, geotechnical, and environmental services. The scheme provides improved access between Kings Hill and the M20 Motorway, and includes a new road-over-rail bridge, a two-span reinforced concrete highway bridge, a steel arch pedestrian bridleway bridge, and a bypass to the local community of Leybourne.

With the upgrades now complete, the A228 is helping both the business community and the people who live in the surrounding areas get where they need to go in record time.
