New Tesco Express under construction at Westbrook, 0.5 miles from Arlington

It doesn’t get any weirder than this. Construction for a new Tesco Express store is underway at Westbrook, less than half a mile, from the proposed superstore site at Arlington Margate.¬†Signs state the store is scheduled for opening on February 24th 2012.

Hoardings are up, and work is underway. This is less than a 10 minute walk round the corner from the Arlington, effectively creating a Tesco sandwich of the independent shops at Westbrook along the A28, The Canterbury Road.
