Balfour Beatty reaches key milestone on A21 project

7 July 2017


Balfour Beatty, the international infrastructure group, has reached a key milestone on its A21 project, unveiling a new flyover which forms a part of the major upgrade works to the highway between Tonbridge and Pembury in Kent.

The new dual carriageway and flyover will improve journey times and traffic flow as drivers will no longer need to stop at the old Longfield roundabout, instead using the flyover to continue with their journey.

George Pargeter, Balfour Beatty Project Director for the A21 Tonbridge to Pembury Project, said, “We are very pleased with the progress on the A21 given the complex nature of this project. The Longfield Flyover is set to transform journeys for local residents by providing a more streamlined route for drivers continuing on the A21 and is a testament to the skills and expertise of the project team.”
