Roadworks on M2 between Chatham and Faversham for the next six weeks

By Amy Nickalls

Drivers are facing six weeks of disruption on the M2 due to roadworks.

A 24 hour contraflow is being installed on the motorway this weekend and will remain in place overnight until November.

Resurfacing and waterproofing work is being carried out, forcing the road to be closed between junction 3 for Chatham and Maidstone and junction 6 for Faversham this weekend.

On Saturday night between 8pm and 6am there will be a full carriageway closure in both directions to install the contraflow between junctions 4 for Gillingham and junction 6.

The safety barriers will be removed to allow crossover and be replaced with an alternative barrier. 

Overnight on October 1 and 2 the motorway will be closed eastbound to install an alternate barrier to the buffer zone for the contraflow. 

On Tuesday night the road will be switched to contraflow with changes made to the road markings and a barrier will be installed to protect work at junction 5.  

The alternative route suggested by Highways England is to take the M2 junction 3, A229, M20 and A251.

Work on this part of the M2 will continue for the next six weeks.

Signs have been put up at Medway Services warning drivers it would be closed overnight from 7pm for four nights from Friday.

A spokesman from Moto, which runs the services, said: “The closure is a consequence of work outside our control but we understand the reasons.

“We’re sorry if it causes any inconvenience.”

Junction 2 will also be closed from 10pm on Friday until 6am the following day for barrier repairs.
