Balfour Beatty to commence A21 upgrade after Easter

Balfour Beatty has announced it will start main construction works on the planned A21 upgrade after Easter. The upgrade is being delivered on behalf of the Highways Agency as part of a £35m dualling and improvement scheme.

 

A 2.5 mile stretch of the A21 – the road linking London with Hastings – will be improved between Tonbridge and Pembury in Kent. A dual carriageway will be constructed, adding an additional lane in each direction, along with an associated junction, road layout improvements, two underpasses and an overbridge.

 

Graham Link, Project Manager for the Highways Agency, said: “The A21 is a vital route linking the region to the M25 and London. The new section will provide much needed capacity to reduce congestion and will also improve safety with a better road layout and new junctions provided.”

 

Preparatory works on the road began last autumn after Balfour Beatty was awarded the contract in July 2014, beating off the likes of BAM Nuttall and Laing O’Rourke.

 

It is anticipated the scheme will be completed in spring 2017.
