A21 safety package
Highways England has committed to deliver a suite of safety improvements along the A21 route corridor from Sevenoaks to Hastings. We have brought forward this package of works in recognition of the safety improvements they will make to the travelling public and local communities.
The A21 has, for many years, suffered from a significant level of collisions.
We are bringing forward a series of schemes to improve safety along this corridor, which will include, amongst others:
- junction improvements
- improvements to road alignment and visibility
- changes to speed limits
- improved signing, markings and road studs
This work is to improve safety and won't improve capacity along the A21. We'll be looking at that as part of our 'route strategy' work which is due to start shortly.
