M20 junction 8 to 9 moveable barrier

A new moveable concrete barrier that can be set up to keep Kent’s roads moving at times of cross-channel disruption.

Region:  South East
Start date:  Summer 2020
Cost:  £60 million
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Improvement Scheme
End date:  December 2020 (temporary resilience), 2022 (completed)
Programme:  

Why we need this scheme

In the event of cross-Channel disruption, the new scheme will be designed to ensure that the M20 can be kept open. During normal traffic conditions, the new scheme allows the motorway to retain three lanes, a hard shoulder and 70mph speed limits in both directions.
