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

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:
