We have waited far too long for Highways England to make the 40mph limit on the A20 variable.
I have again urged Highways England hurry up with scrapping the hated limit. It should only be enforced when Dover TAP is in place.
Drivers are sick and tired of crawling along the A20 while being tailgated by foreign lorries.
Unsurprisingly, people are using alternative routes. This means more traffic on the Alkham Valley Road and driving through Capel, creating further gridlock
When Dover TAP is enforced, lorries are stopped at traffic lights at the Western Heights roundabout. This prevents Snargate Street and Townwall Street from becoming gridlocked. These traffic lights should be moved further back along the A20 to stop parked-up lorries disrupting Aycliffe residents' sleep. Highways England must find a way of moving these traffic lights away from the Aycliffe estate.
