Pedestrian & cycle path proposal in Dartford out to public consultation

A proposal for a shared pedestrian and cycle path along Princes Road in Dartford is due to go out to public consultation today.

The plans would see a 900m-long path run along Princes Road, to the east of the M25 Junction 1b.

The proposals require the widening of the existing pavement between the Princes Road Interchange Roundabout and the Peanut Roundabout.

The existing cycle route takes a continuous path around the housing estate to the south of Princes Road and the addition would add a more direct route for cyclists travelling in the area.

The consultation runs until June 10.

If a decision is taken to proceed with the scheme, KCC intends to start work in early autumn.

Lane closures will be required but it is unlikely that any full road closures will be needed and KCC will endeavour to keep any inconvenience to a minimum.

Kent County Council has secured funding from the Local Growth Fund, allocated by the South East Local Enterprise Partnership, for Integrated Door-to-Door Services in Kent Thameside for this project.

In addition, a Section 106 funding contribution, which specifies spend on footway and cycling improvements, is also available.
