Station Road in Aylesford: part of the former B2011

The B2011 started and finished on the A20, forming a bypass of Maidstone to the north. However, it ran through the middle of several villages, so its usefulness was undermined somewhat.

It was upgraded to become the A2011 around 1958, following the replacement of the old single lane bridge across the River Medway with a temporary two lane bridge to the east, to act as a temporary Maidstone Bypass while the A20(M) was constructed; the road was declassified when the motorway was opened in 1961.

Today, the road remains unclassified, bar a very small section by the Chiltern Hundreds pub and Sittingbourne Park & Ride, which has survived as a rerouting of the A249 following M20 upgrades and widening in the late 1980s.
