Charlie has battled for better transport links. Thanks to Charlie's campaigning, the high speed train sweeps into Deal every hour – and the Port of Dover was not sold off.
The hated A20 40mph speed limit was finally scrapped in 2017 after a long battle. Charlie held a public meeting in Aycliffe so residents could make their voices heard to highways chiefs. Weeks later it was at last confirmed that the 40mph limit would be axed.
Charlie is fighting for more lorry parking facilities along the M20 and M2/A2 - to prevent long queues and help battle the blight of unsightly roadside rubbish. He is also campaigning for the A2 to be fully dualled, after Labour axed plans for this much-needed work.
After the railway sea wall at Dover failed, Charlie led a task force to get it fixed. He delivered £50 million of investment and the railway re-opened in autumn 2016, way ahead of schedule.
