Why we need this scheme

The Kent Thameside area is predicted to see significant growth in the future. This could lead to the development of 50,000 homes and the creation of 58,000 jobs. Around 15,000 homes and 30,000 jobs could be created that would be served by the Bean and Ebbsfleet junctions. Our proposed scheme is needed to support this predicted growth. It’s part of the Kent Thameside Strategic Transport Programme (STP).

The scheme in detail

The Bean and Ebbsfleet junctions are on the busy A2 trunk road separated by approximately 1.2 miles (2 kilometers). The Bean junction connects the Bluewater shopping centre and the B255 to the A2. The Ebbsfleet junction connects the A2 with the B259 Southfield Road. We are proposing to improve both junctions. A number of alternatives are being reviewed.

Aims

The aim of this scheme is to support growth in the Kent Thameside area.
