Dear Kent County Council,

Please let me have a copy of carbon emission data associated with the whole life cycle of materials, energy use and construction of the following roads:
1. A249 at M2 Junction 5
2. A28 Birchington, Acol and Westgate-on-Sea Relief Road
3. A229 Blue Bell Hill Junction Upgrades
4. M2/A2 Brenley Corner Upgrade

This is sometimes referred to as “embodied carbon”.
For the avoidance of doubt this is not a request for carbon emissions data directly related to the use of the road by all kinds of vehicles over the 60 year assessment period.

Please let me know if these assessments of carbon were carried out following guidance contained in PAS2080 Carbon Management in Infrastructure and which organisation or consultancy /consultancies carried out the assessment.

Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Kris Welch
