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.
