New signage for approach to Great Danes roundabout at M20 Junction 8.

Kent County Council Highways have advised Hollingbourne Parish Council that they will be installing new signage and yellow road markings on the approaches to the Great Danes roundabout from the M20 and A20 on 2nd July. The roundabout is at Hollingbourne Corner where the B2163/C603 meets the A20 and the intention is that traffic is slowed before it meets the busy junction.

Many local parents and other have complained about safety at the junction because of the need for children to cross the dual carriageway in the mornings in order to catch the 10X bus service into Maidstone.

A copy of the plan with the yellow road markings as black lines appears below.
