The C490 runs alongside the A228 through the village of Halling, presumably as the previous route of this road. It starts at a roundabout just north of the village as Kent Road, with terraced housing along one side. Turning left and becoming the High Street, the road passes Halling station and over the Medway Valley Line. Continuing south, the road passes more terraced housing before modern developments appear. Finally, the road passes the local primary school before rejoining the A228.
