HAVE YOUR SAY ON A21

Good afternoon

We have launched a consultation on proposed changes to the A21 Sevenoaks Road.

In May 2023 we made some emergency changes to the A21 at its junction with Sevenoaks Road to make it safer for all road users. We banned the right-hand turning movement from the A21 into Sevenoaks Road, moved the ‘merge point’ for traffic further east and reduced the westbound lanes of A21 Sevenoaks Road down to a single lane. We did so to help road users be more visible to one another.

We made these changes because over the last three years or so, there have been two collisions at this junction in which three people tragically lost their lives. These collisions occurred between vehicles travelling westbound with vehicles turning in and out of this junction. The changes were intended to keep everyone using this junction safe. This is in line with The Mayor’s Vision Zero Action Plan which is central to our aim to eliminate all death and serious injuries on London’s roads. To achieve this, we must take steps to reduce road danger for everyone.

We have now reviewed the changes we made and we now want to hear your thoughts about a new set of proposals. In summary, we propose to:
  • to reduce the speed limit from 50mph to 40mph
  • reinstate the banned right turn on the eastbound A21, but to control it with new traffic signals
  • keep the westbound traffic at one lane, reduced from two.

This email explains how you can find out more about these proposals and respond to the consultation.
