Ashford benefits from a strong road network that provides excellent links to the UK and the continent.

As Ashford continues to grow, it is important our the town's transport infrastructure can cope with the increased traffic, and a number of improvements projects are planned or are already underway to help the town meet the needs of its growing population.

Plans includes improvements to the capacity and access to M20 junctions 9 and 10, the creation of a new motorway junction (M20 J10a), improving town centre road junctions, remodelling the former town centre ring road and better traffic management.

Successes to date include the major remodelling of the former ring road and introduction of the UK's first shared space scheme in the town centre, and improvements to a key transport artery through the Willesborough area that was previously constrained by a low level narrow width railway bridge.
