The M2 is set to be closed overnight for several weeks between Junction 1 at Shorne and Junction 3 at Chatham.

National Highways says diversions will be in place during the closure, which will be in place from Monday October 25 due to resurfacing works being carried out in both directions.

They say they will also be using the closure to carry out additional repair works on the M2 Colewood Bridge, which spans the motorway.

The works are due to take place eastbound from Monday October 25 until Friday 19 November 19, with the motorway closed from 8pm until 6am each weekday evening.

The westbound lane closures will be in place from Monday November 22 to Friday December 3, each weekday evening from 8pm to 6am.

National Highways also says finalised dates for the westbound carriageway closures are to be confirmed.

Diversions routes will vary during different phases of the scheme.

Diversions for the eastbound closure between Junction 1 and 2 will take traffic approaching Junction 1 to M2 junction 4 at Gillingham via the A289, A2 and A278.

For westbound lane closures between Junction 2 and Junction 1 – traffic approaching Junction 2 will be forced to exit the motorway at Junction 1 and follow a short diversion to re-enter the M2 on-slip at Junction 1.

For the closure of Junction 2 to 3, eastbound traffic will be diverted via the A228, M20 and A229 and back onto the M2 eastbound carriageway.

National Highways has apologised for any inconvenience and disruption.
