A 'robust' security fence will surround the new lorry park off the M20 in order to protect drivers according to a new consultation document.
The report reveals more detail about the scheme intended to alleviate the misery of Operation Stack, by providing 3,600 spaces where lorries can wait without blocking the M20.
When not in use for stack, the site will provide 500 overnight spaces along with washing and toilet facilities, a move intended to provide an alternative for drivers parking up at the side of roads.
Drivers will be charged for overnight stays when stack is not in operation, but the price has not yet been set.
They will reach the overnight section of the site through the M20 Services, obviating the need for a new sliproad.
Several public rights of way cross the site including both footpaths and bridleways.
Gates in the security fence will provide public access but these will be locked during Operation Stack.
Technical issues have been blamed for a delay in publishing details of the design for the proposed M20 lorry park.
The document is intended to form the basis of the consultation into the design for the park at Stanford, near Hythe.
The six-week consultation will take place and the agency said they would be considering an extension due to the problem.
Dates for the public exhibitions which will be held during the consultation have today been revealed by Highways England:
