Easter Sunday traffic updates for Operation Brock, the M20, A2, A20 across Kent, Dover and Folkestone- recap


Thank you for following our daily live blog centred on roads, rail and bus travel. KentLive’s updates aimed to ensure you have a smooth journey across the county wherever you’re headed during this mini-holiday.

We brought you the very latest from our main routes across Kent paying extra attention to the Dartford Crossing, the M25 and the M20 due to Operation Brock. This is also the place to come for updated information on railway delays into London and any road closures right across the county including the Medway towns.

A speed restriction is still in place on the M20 coastbound due to Operation Brock where all freight traffic heading for a channel crossing must go through the coned area on the coastbound between Junction 8 (Leeds Castle / Maidstone Services) and Junction 9 (Ashford). The London Bound side remains open, but with a 50mph speed limit.

Services are suspended on P and O Ferries between Dover and Calais due to operational changes. The Hull-Rotterdam and Cairnryan-Larne service is now operating on a reduced schedule and the Liverpool-Dublin service is sailing to schedule.

There were no Southeastern railway services via Gillingham, Lewisham and the Bexleyheath line where several routes were affected. Replacement buses will run between New Cross and Dartford via Bexleyheath as well as between Rochester and Rainham.

Traffic was being held on the M2 following a crash and oil spillage. The incident is thought to have taken place at around 12:10pm today but lanes reopened at approximately 2.20 pm
