Route

It branches off from the existing NCR 18 at Chartham and broadly follows the Great Stour river valley to a point just south of Godmersham where it rejoins the NCR 18.

Length: about 8 km.

Rationale

It continues the Canterbury to Chartham riverside route (due for completion in 2010), offering a more direct and less hilly route than the existing section of NCR 18.
