The M20 is closed coastbound between junctions 8 and 9 






Last updated: Tuesday 30 June 2015 – 8.45am

It is anticipated that due to industrial action in France the port in Calais is set to remain closed until Thursday.

We are currently also aware of disruption to Eurotunnel services in both directions.

Anyone intending to travel through the Channel Tunnel is advised to check with the operator before starting their journey.

Phase Two of Operation Stack was put in place on the M20 coastbound carriageway on Monday 29 June and motorists are warned of significant disruption to their journeys.

Non-freight traffic continues to be diverted onto the A20 from Junction 8 (Hollingbourne) and is rejoining the motorway at Junction 9 (Ashford West). This allows backed-up freight traffic to park on the coastbound carriageway of the M20.

It is important to note that as a result of a build-up of heavy freight traffic on the M20, A20 and roads in and around Dover, junction 13 of the M20 is also currently closed in the direction of the Port of Dover.

All non-freight traffic will need to follow diversions or seek alternative routes.
