  1. Hi, for anyone needing to travel the length of the M20, I’m afraid the layout of information is such that it’s almost incomprehensible. Any actual issues are lost in the breakdown of the reports and the verbiage.
    Ideally exception reporting only ie where there are actual problems and delays is all that anyone needs eg 20 minute hold up westbound J10-J9.
    Thanks for trying though.

  2. Hi, did any of the road works on the M20 scheduled on the weekend of Fri 19th 2021 overrun effecting travel on Mon 22nd and Tues 23rd Feb 2021.

      1. Caroline Chandler

        Eurotunnel have told us M20 junctions closed Sunday 4th August, can you please confirm this and let me know diversion timings

      1. Sorry this happened but I believe there was a problem with the traffic data we receive direct from Highways England. If no data is supplied we cannot create traffic incidents. No one system is 100% perfect I’m afraid.

  3. You should update your M20 roadworks/closures. Many of the dates listed have passed by! I have to check it daily due to shift working and it takes longer with all the out of date notices.

    1. Hello, yes this is deliberate as we are now keeping records for around 2 months. We receive many requests for historical data to be used in travel insurance claims: Proof of traffic delays etc.

      The latest incidents are always at the “top” of any page/list.

      1. Can’t believe there are no roadworks or junction closures imminent-why is there no information in the boxes. I need to travel today (11th July) after 8pm to junction 3
