star this property answer text <p>The Government is currently consulting on a draft Airports National Policy Statement, with the consultation closing on 25 May 2017. Following consultation and Parliamentary scrutiny, the Government will consider all the responses received and, if it chooses to proceed, could then lay a proposed final Airports National Policy Statement before Parliament. It would be inappropriate for the Government to speculate on the content of any final Airports National Policy Statement before all of the relevant procedural steps have been taken. I would encourage the Hon Member to set out his views on the issue of landfill clearing costs in his response to the consultation.</p> more like this

At junction 1a, yellow box markings have been added and the traffic signal timings have been optimised. Signal timing reviews at junctions 1b and 2 should be completed by the end of December 2016. In addition, journey time sensors are now being installed on the approaches to Dartford to improve the information being given to drivers and to improve the management of traffic to ease congestion more quickly. These measures are designed to improve local traffic flow at these junctions. The whole package of works is due to be completed by December 2017.</p><p> </p><p>Highways England will continue to look for ways to improve traffic flows at the Crossing and on the surrounding network. For the period from 2020 and beyond, the Government is looking at what further measures can be taken. This is being considered through the current round of the Route Strategy Studies, which will inform road investment priorities for 2020 – 2025 and beyond.</p>
