JUNCTION 5 SLIPROADS at M25 Sevenoaks
Now the political landscape has shifted at Westminster, Tom Tugendhat MP has been able to go public with his strongest statement yet about J5 Slips. The survey below is a bit wordy, but get everyone to complete it, build up the numbers, and we may win yet.
"One of the problems with the M26 is that there are no slip roads to Sevenoaks at its junction with the A21 and M25. This means traffic is forced off at Wrotham Heath, adding to air pollution concerns through Platt, Borough Green and Ightham.
To deliver this, we need Transport for the South East (TfSE) to ensure the project is prioritised. I am disappointed their draft Strategic Investment Plan doesn’t even mention this.That’s why I’m asking everyone locally to respond and ensure that this much needed project gets the attention from TfSE that it deserves. You can do so here.
We have until 12 September 2022 to respond. Please make sure you have your say.

BUS CUTS In spite of a huge public consultation response opposing Bus Cuts, KCC have decided to ignore us, despite having a £35M Government Grant for Bus Improvements. It is supposed to support bus lanes and the like, but what are the point of bus lanes if they cut the b***y buses? We have written to Baroness Vere at Westminster asking her to intercede. Her Response - (answers on a postcard, please) but KCC will worry that Westminster is on the case

One of the regular contributions to the Voice for many years were the humorous observations about village life and characters by Muriel Rurial, now sadly ended. But with the closing of "Kent Aloominum" Margaret, editor of the Voice has published an excerpt, one that bought tears to my eyes. Muriel Rurial 2007
