Roads Minister Mike Penning has given the go ahead for development work to start on the widening of the A21 in Kent. A section of the road was due to be turned into dual carriageway but the work was shelved in 2010 because of budget cuts.
The development work will focus on designing and consulting on proposals, along with progressing any necessary statutory processes.
