The two routes below have been identified by the DfT as the highest risk of fatal or serious collisions in Kent based on analysis between 2012 and 2014.
· A252 between Charing and Chilham
· A290 between Canterbury and Whitstable
There is potentially up to £200k per km available (A252- £2.8m and A290- £1.7m) for specific interventions on these roads only to make them safer. The bid for funds is aimed at reducing death and serious injury through a programme of practical road improvement measures, crash protection and higher standards of route management.
As Cabinet Member for Planning, Highways, Transport and Waste, I agree to:
1) give approval to the principle of the bid submission for the two routes identified by the DfT and the Road Safety Foundation; and
2) give delegated authority to the Director of Highways, Transportation and Waste to spend the funding should the bid be successful.
