Operation Brock was launched at 6am on Monday which is to help manage the flow of traffic on Kent’s motorways in preparation for a no-deal Brexit.
Operation Brock has started just three days before the UK are to leave the EU, despite signs that the EU are set to grant yet another delay until the end of January 2020.
Lorries that are travelling to Europe will face a 13 mile stretch of the coastbound carriage of the M20 with a 30 mile per hour speed limit.
All other traffic travelling on the M20 will use a 50 mile per hour contraflow consisting of two lanes on the London bound side. This will also include lorries holding UK deliveries.
Highways England south east operations director Nicola Bell said, “We have worked extensively with our partners in Kent to ensure that the county is as prepared as possible for any disruption to cross-channel services.”
