M20 Junction 10a
- Capital Investment - Kent & Medway, More than £2m, LGF1
Construction in progress
Expected completion date
The new Junction 10a is proposed around 700m east of the existing Junction 10. It will use two bridges and connect to the existing A20 and a new dual carriageway link road built to the A2070 near Sevington.
The new Junction 10a in Ashford will be paid for by the transport authority and the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP), a public and private sector body which tells the government where to spend money to boost the county’s economy.
Although Highways England and SELEP will meet the majority of the cost, some contributions will be made by developers in due course.
The benefits of this will be to improve local infrastructure, ease the pressure on the existing junction 10 and unlock the opportunities for proposed developments in Ashford, 31,000 homes, and future job creation, 28,000 jobs.
