||<p>The Department works with Highways England and Kent County Council to ensure roads
in East Kent can support international freight traffic.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>This
includes Highways England funding a movable barrier which enables Operation Brock
to hold heavy goods vehicles in the event of serious disruption at the Port of Dover
and Eurotunnel, and allows the M20 to remain open for other traffic in both directions.
For the longer term, Highways England is currently developing options for two schemes
on the A2/M2 route to inform future road investment decisions.</p><p> </p>
