Stack is back: motorists told to prepare for more travel misery

Operation stack is being put in place on the M20 yet again due to traffic heading to the Port of Dover, according to police.

The emergency traffic measure, which sees lorries queuing on the motorway while non freight traffic is diverted, has been used several times in the last month.

Kent Police say the decision to implement it was made due to traffic building up towards the port and Eurotunnel. Coastbound traffic will be diverted at junction 8 and rejoin the M20 at junction 9.

Kent Police is reminding lorry drivers that those at the front of the queue will get a ticket to continue their journey to the continent. Those who use the diversions for non-freight traffic in an attempt to get closer to the front, and who do not have a ticket, will be sent to the back of the Op Stack queue.
