A2, Pepper Hill
A2, Pepper Hill
This section of the A2 near Gravesend was widened to 3/4 lanes between Pepperhill and Cobham in 2007. It was also re-routed away from the houses of Gravesend/Singlewell. This was to make room for the extra lanes and reduce the amount of noise from the widened roads. The new section of road was opened in 2009.
A2 Road

The A2 runs 72 miles from Borough TQ3279 : Great Dover St in London to Dover, through Kent, formerly known as the Dover Road or Great Dover Road. It follows roughly the course of the Roman Watling Street and historically it has always been an important road because it connects London with Canterbury and the port of Dover. In the 18th and 19th century it was turnpiked and given its present designation in the 1920s.
