Grave concerns have been raised regarding the safety of a major road following a fatal accident.
The carriageway heading onto the Peninsula remained closed until the following morning.
Safety concerns and a lack of a viable alternative route are among the issues being put to Medway Council and Kent Police by Cllr Ron Sands.
The Peninsula ward councillor says road safety on the A228 has been discussed at the council multiple times with nothing coming to fruition so far.
He said: "Those questions are asked every couple of years and nothing happens."
There is also concern about the road given the amount of development planned for the area.
Last year, Medway Council obtained £170 million from the government's Housing Infrastructure Fund.
Proposals initially set out by the council centre around making Hoo St Werburgh a rural town, which would see the development of 12,000 new homes, a new railway station and improvements to the existing A228 and A289, as well as an access road.
The ideas were subject to a consultation earlier this year and will be used to inform the new Medway Local Plan which is due to be published in draft in March next year.
Although there are alternative routes giving access to the Peninsula via Cooling and Cliffe, these are considered to be ill-equipped to deal with lorries due to the roads being narrow.
Mr Sands added: "Now we have got the possibility of 12,000 houses increasing the traffic threefold - if each house has three cars - and that's without the commercial developments at Kingsnorth and Grain.
"Fatalities will grow exponentially if we don't do anything now."
The Independent councillor says he would support speed cameras being installed on Four Elms Hill towards High Halstow.
Cllr Phil Filmer, portfolio holder for front line services, said: “I was deeply saddened to hear of the fatal accident which occurred last week, and my thoughts are with the family of the individual involved.
"It would not be appropriate to comment on the specifics of that incident until the police have provided our Road Safety Officers with their report.
"Once this has been received, the council will then consider potential interventions as may be needed."
