Opening booklets 13 June 2010
In days gone by, new roads were often celebrated with a grand opening ceremony and the issue of a commemorative booklet heralding the exciting new highway. You'll find some of them here, complete with a glimpse of all that empty tarmac and a healthy dose of modernist optimism.
M2 Widening 23 October 2008
Upgrade of the existing two-lane M2 to three and four lane plus hard shoulder carriageways as far as junction 4. The upgrade is largely 'parallel' - a second carriageway is constructed alongside the existing motorway, with the present two carriageways eventually becoming one single wide carriageway. The scheme also includes massive upgrades to substandard junctions and the construction of a second Medway Bridge.
