Overnight road works will close part of the M2 for three weeks.
The closure of both carriageways between junctions 5 (A249) and 7 (A2/A299) is to protect Highways England contractors while they carry out the work.
Highways England says it expects the work to take approximately three weeks from Monday, February 1 and will also affect all slip roads along the stretch of carriageway, as well as the road leading to the London-bound carriageway of the M2 at junction 5 (A249).
Traffic will be diverted using the M20, A2, A229 and A249 between 8pm and 6am.
The carriageway works will include drainage, lighting, electrical and signage works.
Details of all roadworks and closures scheduled across the county can be found in our Public Notices section in print or online, along with a host of other announcements ranging from alcohol licence requests to planning applications; probate to public rights of way.
