The £104m project will see junction 10a constructed about half a mile south of the existing junction 10, connecting to the existing A20 and a new dual carriageway link road built to the A2070 near Sevington. The junction is expected to open in 2019.

Chris Welby-Everard, regional delivery director for Highways England in the South East said: “Junction 10a will unlock job-creating developments in the local area and will take pressure off the existing junction 10. It will bring jobs, better infrastructure for local services and help maintain the quality of life in and around Ashford.”
