No legal challenges made to A21 dualling scheme

The six week period during which any legal objections to the A21 dualling scheme can be made has ended and the Highways Agency has appointed the main contractor for the construction work, Balfour Beatty.

Greg Clark commented:

"This is another big milestone for the A21 dualling. Although the Secretary of State for Transport gave the go-ahead in May, there was always the chance that someone might decide to mount a legal challenge, which would have halted progress. The fact that no challenge has been made is a huge relief, and reflects the overwhelming case for the dualling that we have made. We can now look forward to seeing work beginning on site from this Autumn."
