A21 Kippings Cross to Lamberhurst 

Location: UK » South East » TN
Sector: Transport

The government cancelled the proposed A21 Kippings Cross to Lamberhurst road improvement project in its October 2010 Spending Review.

The A21 links the Hastings/Bexhill and Tunbridge Wells/Tonbridge conurbations to the M25 and the trunk road network. The Kippings Cross to Lamberhurst section has a high accident rate and congestion occurs particularly at peak times. There are no footways on this section and the verges are either very narrow or non-existent.

The route alignment is poor and there are numerous frontages with direct access to the trunk road. The narrow verges limit visibility and this, combined with the numerous bends and crests, limits safe overtaking opportunities.
