A28 Sturry Link Road
- Capital Investment - Kent & Medway, More than £2m, LGF1
Design in progress
Expected completion date
There are approximately 18,000 vehicles per day (vpd) using the level crossing at Sturry. This is the combination of traffic from Herne Bay via the A291 and Thanet via the A28 joining and heading towards Canterbury City Centre.
The link road is designed to remove the need for mainline traffic on the A28 (from Thanet district) and the A291/A28 (from Herne Bay, a satellite town of Canterbury) to cross the level crossing at Sturry, by means of an alternative bridge.
