Step Ahead of the Rest (StAR)

Step Ahead of the Rest (StAR) is a bid from Kent County Council to the Department of Transport that supports our strategic aim for Kent communities to feel the benefits of economic growth by being in work, healthy and enjoying a good quality of life.

We propose to support economic development and healthier living by encouraging the use of active and sustainable modes of travel to access employment, education and training.

We have selected locations in the bid that have received local government funding, as well as significant economic development sites across Kent due to be completed before 2020. This will build on previous local strategic transport funded schemes, such as Kent Connected.
