Following a hectic bank holiday weekend for travel, Operation Brock currently remains in place on the M20. The divisive contraflow system is in effect along the busy motorway between Maidstone and Ashford, having been implemented in order to help manage the increased traffic during the three-day weekend.

National Highways has currently confirmed that a date and time have not yet been set for the removal of Operation Brock. While the system remains in place, road users will need to continue following the speed restrictions and rules of the contraflow.

Meanwhile, roadworks will impact a number of major Kent motorways and A-roads throughout the remainder of the week. The M2 westbound will see weeknight closures between Junctions 7 and 5 for continued maintenance and drainage works.

This will then be followed by a full weekend closure of the M2 London-bound carriageway between Junction 3 for the A229 and Blue Bell Hill, and Junction 2 for the A228 and Strood. During this time, bridge maintenance works will be completed with drivers needing to follow a diversion while the route is closed. Full details can be found here .

Other works will impact the A2, A20, A21 and M25 throughout the week. Most closures will be in place between 8pm and 6am to minimise disruption.
