The Secretary of State for Transport has confirmed the Kent County Council (A28 Chart Road Improvement) (Compulsory Purchase) Order 2017. The Order allows the widening of the A28 Chart Road to a two lane dual carriageway with works to a number of roundabouts and junctions, and the construction of a new bridge over the London to Dover railway line. The scheme will assist the Chilmington Green development of almost 6,000 houses to proceed. The final outstanding objections to the Order, from Network Rail and Matalan, were withdrawn shortly before the scheduled start of the inquiry, allowing the inquiry to be cancelled.
