The London-bound carriageway has two running lanes, operating with a 50mph speed limit.</p><p> </p><p>The metal barrier that is currently in place on the London-bound carriageway between junctions 8 and 9 of the M20 will remain under regular review over the coming months but is unlikely to be removed before the end of October. This is to allow for the option of deploying the contraflow at short notice during times of cross-Channel disruption, caused by bad weather or industrial action, for example.</p><p> </p><p>Highways England are responsible for operational decisions regarding the strategic road network in England, which includes the M20 in Kent. Decisions regarding significant changes to this road network – such as the removal of the barrier or the use of lanes on the M20 carriageways – are made on their advice and by taking into consideration the safety and convenience of all road users.</p>
