Council criticised over red routes plan

He said: "In some parts of Medway, they might work.

But here in Rainham, the build up of traffic flow has got very little to do with illegal parking," he told BBC Radio Kent.

"I think the council hasn't listened to public opinion, I think they've misjudged it in Rainham.

I'm sure it would work, if they addressed the junction at Mierscourt Road."

Drivers can only park and load their vehicles in specific bays along the route.

Motorists will be fined if they stop, load or park their vehicles on the red lines at any time.
