Eleco GR150 on Margate Road

Margate Road also used to have a lot of newer GR150s installed on these standard type Stainton columns. A fair few still remain, but those specimens where these installations were common (around the entrance to the QEQM hospital) have been retrofitted with Arcs. Again, make the most of this while you can!

Lord of the Manor (Old and new)

Scan showing the old and new road layout at the Lord of The Manor near Ramsgate. We lost a congested crossroads and gained a new rail bridge, two new roundabouts and two disused railway bridges. The old route of the A253 has been added for information.

A299 Pegwell Tunnel - Coppermine - 18636.jpg
A299 Pegwell Tunnel

The A299 emerges from the cliffs to complete the final few hundred yards to the ferry terminal. All in all it's quite a dramatic piece of road for the last couple of miles. The tunnel is not heavily used, other than by lorries heading to the port, and a handful cars. If the Ramsgate- Ostende ferry was ever pulled the tunnel would be a bit of white elephant.

London Road, Ramsgate

Still the right designation, I think. But how many B-road signs point to London?!
