Balancing the need for expansive and convenient transport links with our responsibility to deliver a sustainable community, Mountfield Park will encourage walking and cycling while also providing excellent connections by public transport. In addition, investment in electric vehicle charging points is a key element of our sustainable transport solution.
Substantial infrastructure investment in the wider area will see the road network improved - a new junction on the A2 will provide excellent access to and from the wider road network, and a new 1,000 vehicle Park and Ride will support fast bus services to and from the city centre and Canterbury West, with a 6-8 minute frequency at peak hour.
