Medway Services Access Road Opened - Fathing Corner Route Closure Averted

Following petitions raised in the area it has been revealed that local MP Rehman Chisti has met the Transport secretary and obtained agreement to keep the Farthing Corner access road open for local traffic to join the M2 motorway.

This is great news locally as it alleviates the bottlenecks that appear on the A278 junction 4 of the M2 motorway and enables traffic from the east of Gillingham/Rainham to have another route to join the motorway. The existing A278 and access roads are unable to cope with the volumes of traffic as has been shown whenever the Farthing Corner access road has been closed.
