News Council ‘set


for cold snap’ HIGHWAYS England has sought to reassuremembers of the public it is ready to cope with a bitterly cold snap thiswinter. The agency, which is in charge


of theM20 and theM2 in Kent as well as some major A roads, claims to have stockpiled 4,500 tonnes of grit salt to be spread on themotorways. One of its depots is on the out-


skirts ofMaidstone inAylesford. Last winter, the authority got


through 10,000 tonnes of salt and feels more than adequately sup- plied for 2018-19. There are 32 gritters at their dis-


posal, although 12 were hit by other vehicles while out on the job, despite flashing beacons. Most modern gritting vehicles


travel at a speed of 40mph while they are spreading their load and tend to occupy the middle of the carriageways to ensure the maxi- mumcoverage. While Highways England


maintains the coverage of themo- torway network, the gritting of urban and rural highways is car- ried out by Kent County Council.

Transition home for elderly onKMC land


AN INDEPENDENT private healthcareprovider is to operate a “step-down”home for the elderly on the medical business park at junction 7 of theM20. Care UK, which runs 119 facili-


ties in the UK, will run the home when it opens in 2020. It is next door to CygnetHealth-


care’s 65-bed private unit whose patients will include mentally-ill criminals and peoplewith border- line personality disorders. The buildingwill have 75 spaces


for elderly people released from hospital, but who are not quite ready to go home. As well as 100 new jobs, it will


provide rehabilitation, respite, and dementia care on theKentMedical Campus (KMC) site. CareUKis currently building 20


care homes across the country. KMC chairman Tony Collins:


“The decision by Care UK, com- bined with the recent opening of Cygnet Healthcare’s hospital,


means that KMC will soon be home to two leading national care providers, aswell asKent’s largest independent hospital, KIMS. “The extent ofCareUK’s collab-


orative business model with the NHS and public sector agencies nationwide is genuinely inspiring and we believe will enable com- missioners to benefit from the range of services planned for the newfacility.” CareUK’sdevelopmentdirector,


Richard Pearman, said: “We are currently finalising the design of the care home in conjunctionwith the developers to ensure it works


for the people who will live there and our colleagues. “Each of our care homes pro-


vides an impressive range of serv- ices for older people, ranging from short-stay respite care to nursing care, end-of-life care,plus specialist care and support for people living with dementia. “Care UK is proud to be operat-


ing the next generation ofpurpose- built care homes and delighted to have securedthe carehome atKent Medical Campus.” Local firmGallagher has started


the groundworks for the care home onGidds Pond Road.
