"Ebbsfleet International Station" was the name originally proposed for this station, but "Dartford International Station" was later proposed at the urging of Eurostar, who felt that Dartford was a name with greater recognition. This caused controversy as the station although in Dartford Borough is closer to Gravesend than Dartford.[1] Also the similarity of its name to that of Dartford's existing station was of great concern.
