National Highways: Stockbury Flyover will open to M2 and A249 motorists in July

Highway bosses have confirmed when they hope a highly-anticipated multi-million-pound flyover will open to motorists.

National Highways’ M2 Junction 5 project manager, Daniel Rollinson, have confirmed when the highly anticipated multi-million-pound flyover will open to motorists. Rollinson says if all goes well, the £92 million Stockbury Flyover will be available to traffic in July, says Kent Online.

The scheme aims to make journeys easier and safer for motorists travelling between Maidstone, Sittingbourne and Sheppey on the A249.

He said: “Anybody who’s driven through the scheme, particularly in the last nine to 12 months, would have seen a lot of change, specifically with the flyover itself.

“The flyover is now complete, so the retaining walls are done and we’re just doing the curbing now and then we’ve got to actually build the road layers before it is available for traffic to use.

“We’re aiming to open the flyover itself to traffic sort of July, early July to mid-July.
