The workers have been busy removing the old primary signage from the A249, but this roundabout sign lingers on. It won't be long before it too bites the dust!

Apart from the fencing and cones, there's not much stopping the new section of A249 from being open. Indeed, just last week someone decided to be clever, dodged through the cones and discovered that the road isn't quite open yet!

It's not open yet, but the signs have gone up for the new dual carriageway onto the Isle of Sheppey in Kent. This ADS is *huge* - note the smaller Highways Agency sign for comparison!
