The contract to build the scheme was awarded to Balfour Beatty on 9 July 2014.

Some site clearance and advance environmental mitigation work started in September 2014 with the main construction work starting in spring 2015. Construction will take approximately 2 years.

We are holding a public exhibition at The Mecure Hotel in Pembury and members of the project team will be available to explain the recent environmental mitigation work and answer questions about the scheme.

The exhibition will be held at The Mecure Tunbridge Wells Hotel in Pembury on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 October. It will be open to the public between 2pm and 8pm on Friday and between 10am and 4pm on Saturday.

An update on the scheme and works is also available in our Newsletter No.4 September 2014, now available on the Publications tab above.

A Public Inquiry for the scheme was held between 14 May and 9 July 2013 and the Secretary of State’s decision confirming that the scheme will go ahead was announced on 1 May 2014.

The decision letter and the Inspector’s report of the Public Inquiry are on the Department for Transport’s website at:
