New Maidstone gyratory system officially opened

The new Maidstone gyratory system has officially been opened today (Thursday).

Two trees were planted by the steps leading up the crossing on Bishops Way.

Attending were KCC Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport Matthew Balfour and the Mayor of Maidstone Derek Butler.

Mr Balfour said: “We have brought together a really good partnership, Maidstone Borough Council, KCC, the Kent & Medway Economic Partnership and particularly Jacksons.

“Russell Boorman, our Major Capital Programme Project Manager, has put in a lot of hard work and Rebecca Edwards, Jacksons’ Public Liaison Officer, who has kept businesses and the public informed and that has been vital to this project.

“I’d also like to thank the businesses and the travelling public for bearing with us and I’m glad to see this project come to a successful completion.

“Despite the many challenges during this complex project I am pleased to see the new traffic layout in operation and working well.”

Work started on June 6 and in order to minimise disruption, the work was undertaken in phases, both during the day, at nights and weekends.
