BREAKING: M20 shuts to implement Operation Stack

Thursday 24th September 2020

THE M20 is currently closed due to Operation Stack being implemented.

The motorway is closed between Junction 8 Hollingbourne and Junction 9 Ashford.

A Port of Dover spokesman confirmed earlier that Op Stack was to be put in place.

A Kent Highways spokesman said: "The M20 is closed between J8 (Hollingbourne) & J9 (Ashford) due to Operation Stack being implemented." 

Freight vehicles will be taken off at junction eight at Leeds Castle and diverted to the A20.

French port workers have staged a 24 strike on the day of the week most freight passes through the Channel Tunnel and Dover.
