   Operation Brock M20 junctions 9-7 - Update from Highways England    March 19, 2019

Operation Brock is the Kent-wide plan to manage Europe-bound lorries if there is disruption at the ports.

Installation of the barrier on the London-bound carriageway is complete and all that now remains is the final stage of work required to activate the M20 section of Operation Brock. This involves preparing traffic cross-over points at junctions 8 and 9, installing temporary road linings and studs, completing technology and signage works, installing emergency gates and completing road surface improvements.

Overnight carriageway and lane closures are required to complete this work safely.

Coast-bound carriageway J7-9
Mon 18 March - Wed 20 March (6am) 8pm – 6am
Full overnight closure planned

Sat 23 March - Mon 25 March (6am) 8pm - 6am
Full overnight closure planned for operational activation

London-bound carriageway J7-9
Mon 18 March Mon 25 March (6am) 8pm - 6am
Full overnight closure (up to seven nights) depending on previous progress and operational requirements

Clearly signed diversion routes will be in place to help you reach your destination. Some diversions will be via the A249, M2 and A2, so please don’t assume that the previous A20 diversion route will be available. Speed limits will be in place to ensure that everyone has a safe journey.

Towards the end of March further overnight closures may be needed as we complete preparations for Operation Brock. The work schedule for this may be subject to change for operational reasons and we will keep you informed as necessary.

There may also be some changes in the event of adverse weather or other unplanned events. More information about the project and works will be available on our website: www.highwaysengland.co.uk/M20J8to9
