17 minutes by train from St Pancras Eurostar links to Paris (2 hrs. 5 mins) and Brussels (1hr 50 mins) Potential for Crossrail extension Close to M25, M2 and A2 Potential for river taxis and clipper services

Option A

  • A new dedicated access route will be created to separate Entertainment Resort traffic from local traffic, reducing the potential for traffic congestion at the A2 Ebbsfleet junction
  • Adjacent to the existing HS1 rail line to minimise adverse air quality and noise effects
  • Upgrades to the existing ‘Ebbsfleet’ roundabouts north of the A2 to provide a high capacity gyratory, which should reduce impacts on existing local communities and accommodate future traffic flows associated with Ebbsfleet Garden City
  • Entertainment Resort traffic will use a free flowing route from the A2 to the parking and drop off areas, minimising the possibility of queuing back on the A2`

OPTION B

  • As with Option A, a new dedicated access route to the Entertainment Resort would be created that separates Entertainment Resort traffic from local traffic
  • Adjacent to the existing HS1 rail line to minimise adverse air quality and noise effects
  • Local traffic and Entertainment Resort traffic would use an improved A2 eastbound off-slip
  • A new "hamburger" layout roundabout (a roundabout with a road running through the centre) would separate Entertainment Resort traffic from local traffic and provide a through route for resort traffic to minimise the possibility of queuing back onto the A2
