Six-mile queues towards Faversham as Brenley Corner traffic affects M2, A2 and A299

Drivers are stuck in queues stretching back six miles on the M2 as days of traffic misery at one of Kent's busiest junctions continue.

Motorists driving towards the coast are being confronted with lengthy tailbacks at the Brenley Corner roundabout at Faversham as highways officials turn back lorries heading for Dover due to disruption with Channel crossings.

There are currently delays of 30 minutes on the coast-bound M2 between junction 5 for Sittingbourne and junctions 6 for Faversham and 7 for Brenley Corner.

Congestion is also affecting the A2 in Faversham, heading towards the roundabout, and the London-bound A2 from Canterbury.

Two lanes have been reduced to one on the roundabout to allow HGVs heading for Dover or the Channel crossings to be diverted to rejoin the Operation Brock queues on the M20 at Junction 8.

A Kent Resilience Forum (KRF) spokesperson said: “There is slow moving traffic on the M2 and A2 approaches to the M2 Junction 7 Brenley Corner Roundabout due to HGVs attempting to use the M2-A2 corridor to reach the Port of Dover.

“When Operation Brock is active all HGVs heading to the port, or Eurotunnel, must join Brock at Junction 8 of the M20 so the flow of freight heading across the Channel can be managed.

“As is routine when the scheme is in place, a multi-agency team is based at the roundabout returning vehicles to the motorway to join Brock at Junction 8 as required.

“KRF partners, including National Highways and KCC, thank everyone for their patience as they work to keep Kent moving as best as possible in the face of high volumes of freight and the reduced ferry capacity at Dover.”
