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 2020/21.

 

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 (2020/21 and 2021/22) and Year Three to Five (2022/23 to 2024/25) 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 2020/21, 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 District.

 

The Department for Transport (DfT) added £100m to the Local Growth Fund (LGF) pot 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/West Kent (delete as applicable) LSTF this financial year.

Maidstone East Station improvements

Network Rail delivered scheme to include a new station entrance and forecourt , expanded to include highway improvements and resurfacing of footways.

 

 

 

Annette Bonner

Works on the station improvements commenced in January 2020, with the temporary ticket office installed by South-eastern operational since January 2020.  The impacts of COVID-19 are now expected to prolong the project completion. While works on the public realm area are progressing, restrictions on internal works in the station building necessitate different working practices, creating inefficiency and slowing progress.  A revised programme is due from Network Rail shortly.  Artist impression images of the final design have been attached to the site hoarding to provide the public with a vision for the scheme.  KCC Schemes team are working closely with NR, SE and MBC to co-ordinate the highway & forecourt design with the raised table.  The outline design has been agreed and RSA completed.  Final design reviews to take place in October 2020.  MBC are progressing with the wayfinding design which will tie in the wider improvement works.  SE have awarded the contractor to complete the additional works within the funding timescales.  However, they have a strong dependency on the completion of the forecourt works delivered by Network Rail and are working together to monitor progress and will phase their works accordingly.
