“South East Maidstone Relief Road Update”
Am pleased to announce that following a short delay the investigative works necessary as part of developing the data to support the Relief Road will now be moving ahead at a pace. These are the works that were referred to by the Director of Highways at the Public Meeting I held at the Great Danes before Christmas.
Disappointingly – the delay was due to a reluctance on the part of the Liberal Democrat controlled Borough Council to release the funds from S106 monies. This as well as causing delay meant that KCC officers had to spend time and effort in demonstrating and persuading MBC that the use of these funds for this purpose is perfectly legitimate.
Happily now resolved and we can get on with the work to demonstrate the benefits of a South East Maidstone Relief Road to not only Leeds and Langley but also to the wider communities affected by the congestion in South East Maidstone and with that information we will make the case for the Relief Road and secure funding from Central Govt.”

A note to cheer you all!
At the JTB meeting July 2017, it was stated KCC have a good record on sourcing funds.
We’ve no doubt the feasibility studies will prove positive, we ALL look forward to KCC sourcing the funds from the numerous pots available for bidding.
“Supporting The Relief Road” to serve ALL in S/SE Maidstone, the town centre and further afield has always been paramount. This remains our goal.
Apart from the MBC Elections on May 3rd, there’s little to report at present. Work continues behind the scenes for the RR, gathering evidence for need, then it’ll be sourcing the funding. The HARD part!
Unless anything particularly newsworthy crops up on the RR front, there’s very little to report at present.
Please remember this is YOUR site to post photos, comments, thanks, moans and groans! To ask questions and seek information from each other.
WILLAct – Supporting The Relief Road.
