Greg officially opens North Farm Industrial Estate road improvements

Greg, along with local councillors and business representatives, officially marked the opening of the multi-million pound congestion-busting Longfield Road Improvement Scheme on the North Farm Industrial Estate.

Greg said:

"This is certainly a day for celebration - sorting out the traffic nightmare of North Farm is a massive step forward. This project is a great example of team work between the Government, Kent County Council, Tunbridge Wells Borough Council and local landowners, and I'm grateful to all of them for their efforts. It shows what can be achieved when everyone pulls together."

£3.5million funding, of the total £7.35m, came from the Department for Transport. The additional funding came from developer funding and a contribution from the County Council.

The upgrade involved dualling one kilometre of the carriageway between Dowding Way roundabout and the A21, and replacing existing traffic signals with roundabouts. There is also a shared footway and cycleway along the improved road.
