Fastrack Infrastructure Schemes
Fastrack is a high-quality bus rapid transit system operating in the Dartford, Ebbsfleet and Gravesham area. The existing Fastrack network has been in place since 2006 and provides fast, reliable and efficient transport across Kent Thameside.
A programme of projects has been identified to deliver infrastructure to complete delivery of Fastrack in the Thameside area.
It is planned that Fastrack will be extended to other districts and boroughs in Kent. We are working with Dover District Council towards the introduction of a Dover Fastrack bus service.
Kent Thameside Fastrack schemes
- Gravesham bus hub: a new bus hub to be implemented to improve the transport interchange between bus and rail services in Gravesend town centre at Barrack Row and Garrick Street.
- Bean Road Tunnels: a major civil infrastructure scheme to provide a Fastrack busway and a footway/ cycleway linking Eastern Quarry and Bluewater.
- Bath Street: we are reviewing the feasibility for a scheme using West Street from Thames Way (Imperial Retail Park) and Bath Street with a single contraflow bus lane.
Dover Fastrack scheme
- Dover Fastrack: Dover District Council has been awarded £16.1 million from the government’s Marginal Viability Housing Infrastructure Fund to support the development of a bus rapid transit system between Whitfield, Dover Town Centre and Dover Priory railway station.
