Summary: This report updates Members on the identified schemes approved for construction

 

 

1. Introduction

 

This report provides an update and summarises schemes that have been programmed for delivery in 2019/20.

 

Kent County Council has agreed a substantial increase in the budget for planned highway works over the next three years, and as a result we are still in the process of identifying and designing schemes for inclusion in our full Year One to Two (2019/20 and 2020/21) and Year Three to Five (2021/22 to 2023/24) programmes. Because of this, we have decided to publish an interim programme, and to publish the full programmes later this year.  For some assets this interim programme covers approximately the first six months of 2019/20, whilst for others it includes most of the works planned for the whole year.

 

This programme is subject to regular review and may change for several reasons including budget allocation, contract rate changes, and to reflect KCC’s changing priorities. The programme and extent of individual sites within the programme may also be revised following engineering assessment during the design phase.

Local Growth Fund

 

Local Growth Fund programme update for the Maidstone Borough.

 

The Department for Transport (DfT) added £100m to the Local Growth Fund (LGF) pot in order to fund Local Sustainable Transport Fund Style schemes.  KCC were successful in securing LGF for the following sustainable transport style bids1) Kent Thameside – Integrated door-to-door journeys and 2) West Kent – Tackling Congestion.  The objective of the capital bids is to boost economic growth by decreasing carbon emissions and reducing congestion.

 

The schemes aim to:

 

·         improve access to employment and services

·         reduce the need to travel by the private car

·         enhance pedestrian, cycle and public transport facilities

·         improve sustainable transport connections 

 

The following schemes have been submitted as part of the successful Kent Thameside LSTF this financial year.

 

Scheme

Status

MAIDSTONE EAST STATION IMPROVEMENTS

The newly appointed Asbestos and demolition specialist Rhodar are now on site and have begun demolition of the public house. This is currently running to programme, under asbestos controlled conditions, with most of the roof now removed. The whole ground floor has been cleared of all soft items, such as the bar, doors, partitions, etc, and the basement has been cleared in preparation for backfilling the area to provide protection to the tunnel during the demolition works. The expected completion of the overall programme will be clearer once the demolition of the pub is further completed but is currently expected to be in May/June 2020.

Any public enquiries are being dealt with by Network Rail. Additional KSIP funding has now been confirmed to progress further highway improvements and walking and cycling connections to the station.

Description of Works

Current Status

A20 Ashford Road

Harrietsham

Village improvement works: 2 phase approach.

Phase 1 which consisted of narrowing the carriageway, widening footways to allow shared footway/cycleway, altering the controlled crossing, provision of central islands and changes to the speed limits and associated signing and lining.

Phase 2 will include relocating street lighting columns to better suit the new road layout and to extend the lighting to include all the 30mph limit. Resurfacing of the carriageway to hide the old white lining and then new lining to the recently installed layout.

.

Phase 1 Works completed in June 2019. KCC investigating how phase 2 can be brought forward. Kent County Council are to collect the remaining S106 contribution from Bellway Homes now less the indexation.

 

Please see separate report.
