Starting from the 2nd October, the M20 will be closed between 8pm and 6am. for 2 weeks, between junctions 10 and 11. A speed limit of 50 mph will be set in place together with slipways shut. See details below.
So why should this bother you? This could be a ‘taster’ of what our communities would experience, or in fact worse, should the proposed Lorry park become a reality. When the lorry park is in operation, junction 11 will be closed, making the movement of local traffic much worse. Moreover, a speed limit of 40 mph would be in operation on the M20 at the same time.
So why are Damian Collins and Charlie Elphicke still ranting about building the ‘white elephant’ at pace. Well, we know for a fact that they are confirmed apparatchik’s, ready to perform in the line towing process that any career politician would succumb to, but could it also be that the Road Haulage Association has funded a researcher to the tune of £22,500 to Charlies’ office. Just a thought.
