Dartford improvement package

We are delivering government investment in Dartford over the next 5 years to modernise the region’s roads. We realise that such a large investment will mean temporary disruption on the roads. We will do everything possible to plan and manage our roadworks to minimise disruption.

The investment we are delivering will bring big economic benefits to the region – better connecting places and businesses. For every £1 spent it will bring £3 of economic benefit. It will improve your journeys too – cutting congestion and reducing journey times.

Safety is our top priority. We will ensure that we’re all safer when using the region’s roads for business or pleasure.

Dartford is home to the Dartford Crossing, one of the busiest roads in the country.
