A21 widening may be hit by spending cuts

At last, a silver lining in the spending cuts! Road chiefs are worried about their road building programme including the funding for the A21 widening. Spending £125m to destroy an ancient woodland for the sake of the car is plainly ridiculous but bizarrely our leaders can't see this.

Kent Greens have been fighting the road expansion of the A21. This is the comment from Hazel Dawe: "The A21 dualling scheme would require additional land including good quality arable farmland and ancient woodlands. There are no circumstances under which we would support the allocation of these two types of land to new trunk road building or widening anywhere in Kent. "
