M20 Operation Brock contraflow deactivated

The contraflow, which has been in place on the M20 between junctions 8 and 9 since March has been removed, with the coastbound M20 re-opened to two lanes at 50mph on Monday 6 June.

The London bound M20 will also continue to operate with two lanes at a 50mph speed limit. The moveable barrier will remain in place to allow contractors to resume improvement works that were in place prior to the contraflow being needed, with lane three closed on the coastbound to protect the workforce carrying out the work in the central reservation.  

The work to remove the contraflow was carefully planned to reduce disruption. 

Nicola Bell, National Highways regional director said: “Recently, the roads in Kent have been very busy for a number of reasons, and the decision to deploy Operation Brock and the coastbound contraflow was the right one. We are grateful for peoples’ patience whilst Operation Brock was deployed; it has enabled us to keep Kent moving.”
