M20 - Operation Brock
The M20 carriageway is operating a contraflow system under Operation Brock to help manage freight heading to the cross-channel ports.
The coastbound entry slip roads on the M20 at J9, J10A and J11 are currently open as well as the Dover-bound slip road on the A20 at Courtwood Interchange.
All freight on the M20 approaching J8 is still being led into the M20 sterile area between J8 and J9 to be held, undertake a Covid test before then being forward released to travel ahead to the Eurotunnel Terminal.
All freight heading for Port of Dover is now instructed to use the A2, M2 and A299 route to Manston Airport (postcode CT12 5BQ). Traffic is then held and must undertake Covid testing before being allowed to proceed onwards to Port of Dover.
Road users are advised to expect disruption and to allow extra journey time.
