Highways England regularly monitors the performance of the Strategic Road Network to ensure its efficient operation and performance.

The A21 Tonbridge to Pembury improvement scheme started construction in Spring 2015 and was completed in summer 2017.

The impact of the completed scheme, which is expected to reduce congestion and improve journey times, will be studied next year (2019) as part of Highways England’s programme of Post Opening Project Evaluation. This will consider journey times and other features of the performance on this section of the A21.
