A21 Sevenoaks Road safety improvement scheme - Consultation
8th January 2024
TfL has recently launched a Consultation on proposed changes to the A21 Sevenoaks Road. The BMPC would like to encourage everyone to respond to this Consultation in order for our voices to be heard. The TfL message is below.................
In May 2023 we made some emergency changes to the A21 at its junction with Sevenoaks Road. We have now reviewed the changes and want to hear your thoughts about a new set of proposals.
On this page you can read what is proposed and how you can have your say.
You have until Thursday 15 February 2024 to give us your feedback.
The new proposals for the junction in summary:
- To reduce the speed limit from 50mph to 40mph
- Reinstate the banned right turn on the eastbound A21, but to control it with new traffic signals
- Keep the westbound traffic at one lane, reduced from two
We have also produced a map to illustrate these changes.
