A2070 road (Great Britain)

The A2070 north of Hamstreeet.

The A2070 is a major road running north-south through Kent from Ashford to Brenzett. It provides a strategic link between the M20 motorway and the A259, which runs along the East Sussex coast.

CreationEdit

The route was created from the B2081 (Brenzett to Snave) and the north part of the B2070 (Snave to Ashford)[1]. The route originally passed through Brenzett, Snave, Hamstreet and Kingsnorth.

UpgradeEdit

In the 1990s, the road was upgraded to a primary route with bypasses around these villages[2] and extended east from Kingsnorth across the East Stour river to end at the M20 Junction 10.
