A2500 Lower Road Improvement

Scheme outline

Improvement of the existing A2500 between the A249 Sheppey Way and Barton Hill Drive. This section of road is at present a narrow single carriageway, but carries substantial volumes of traffic, serving most of the eastern side of the Isle of Sheppey. Planned housing developments around Barton Hill Drive will increase pressure on this route.

The improvement will be delivered in two phases:

  • Phase 1 will involve construction of a large new roundabout at the junction of Barton Hill Drive, with provision for a new road to the north west where future development will take place.
  • Phase 2 will involve widening the existing A2500 between Cowstead Corner (the roundabout between the A2500 and Sheppey Way, just off the A249) and the new Barton Hill Drive roundabout, to provide a modern full-width single two-lane road with hard strips, segregated cycle path and modernised drainage facilities.

The new roundabout is due to be completed in February 2019 and the road widening will begin at that point, with all work due to be completed by December of that year.
