Kent haulier Fast Forward International has described the axing of a vital section of the Sittingbourne relief road as "very disappointing news".
Colin McKay, MD at the company, based on the Eurolink Business Park in Sittingbourne, has slammed the decision of Swale Joint Transport Board - made up of Borough councillors from Swale and Kent County Councillors - to vote to scrap the proposed link to the A2 to the east of Sittingbourne.
McKay says: "We've been kept dangling with the promise of this road for over 10 years so this is very disappointing news. This road is vital for journeys down to Dover, there is still only one way in and out of Sittingbourne."
