Trams at Well Hall Roundabout, Rochester Way

Rochester Way was built in the 1920s through the Progress Estate, dividing it in two.
This section leaving Well Hall roundabout became a well-known traffic black spot, as heavy traffic on this main road into Kent caused chaos until the Rochester Way Relief Road was opened in the 1980s. (

In 1953 the Rochester Way had ramps built to offset the bad camber on a particularly nasty series of curves
