Campaign Victory to Get A21 Dualling Funded

The local campaign to secure funding for the A21 dualling between Tonbridge and Pembury can claim victory today (Thursday 27 June 2013) with the announcement by the Chancellor of the Exchequer that £92 million of funding will be available from 2015.

Greg commented:

"This is absolutely brilliant news. I have been campaigning hard over eight years to get the funding for this vital project. With the money in place, work on dualling the A21 can start as soon as possible after the Public Inquiry is completed.

"The fact that the Chancellor has confirmed the funding will definitely be available for 2015 is the breakthrough we've all been working towards. It is a victory for everyone who has campaigned long and hard to get this nightmare stretch of road sorted out once and for all.

"The A21 dualling scheme has had a number of set-backs over the last decade. If the Public Inquiry gives the road scheme the final go ahead, we can, at last, all look forward with confidence that it will actually be built. This is a fantastic day for residents, businesses and visitors throughout West Kent and East Sussex."
