M20 junctions 8 to 9 temporary solution (forming part of Operation Brock)

The M20 junction 8 to 9 temporary solution forms one phase of Operation Brock, which aims to keep the M20 open in both directions in the event of disruption to the strategic network to cross channel travel.

Start date:   June 2018
Cost:  ¬£30 million
Status:  
Type:  Improvement Scheme
End date:  March 2019
