I met with the Transport Secretary this week – and set out why the A20 40mph limit must be axed as soon as possible.
I have been keeping up the pressure on Highways England after they caved into my campaign last autumn and agreed to make the speed limit variable.
Yet local drivers feel Highways England is taking far too long to get the work done. I raised his concerns over the delays with Transport Secretary Chris Grayling.
I completely share local drivers' frustration with Highways England's failure to get on with the job.
First of all they said they would have this absurd speed limit gone by March. Then they said it won't be gone until June.
Yet again they show they are not fit for purpose and have failed to get on with the job. It's wrong they continue to subject local people to yet more delays.
I passed on our concerns to the Transport Secretary – and called for swift action to be taken.
In recent crunch talks, Highways England told me everything was in place to begin construction work in May and finish by the end of July.
A Notice of Determination, a statement that the new A20 scheme will not have a significant impact on the environment, has been published in the London Gazette.
If it goes unchallenged, highways bosses say a six-week programme to install new digital signs will begin immediately.
Details about road closures are expected to be published towards the end of the Notice of Determination process.
I also spoke to Chris Grayling about the need for the A2 to be upgraded and dualled all the way to the Dover and the planned M20 Lorry Park to be delivered on time.
