M20 Junction 10a in Ashford captured in new aerial pictures

After years of talk and almost two years of construction, drivers have been able to use Junction 10a on the M20 for a fortnight now.

The huge new roundabout in Ashford, which is costing £104 million, was first mooted more than a decade ago and opened to traffic on October 31.

It has been built 700 metres south east of Junction 10 and is linked to the A2070 Bad Munstereifel Road via a new link road.

Yesterday, the coastbound slip onto the M20 at Junction 10 and the London-bound off slip at the same junction closed permanently.

It has always been Highways England's intention to shut the slip roads as they have been superseded by Junction 10a.

By the end of November, bosses say the new Junction 10a London-facing slips will be open as only the coast-facing slips are currently accessible.

Last Wednesday, photographer Ady Kerry captured the scheme from above.
