Road markings will be upgraded on the M20 and M2 motorways in Kent.

The work consists of replacing and improving the white lines and road studs on the M20 between junction 3 (Addington) and junction 13 (Folkestone) as well as on the M2 between junction 2 (Strood) and junction 4 (Bredhurst).

According to the Highways Agency, the work needs to be carried out as the existing white lining and studs have reached the end of their operational life and need to be replaced in order to maintain road user safety.

Kevin Bown, Highways Agency planning manager, said: “Safety is our top priority. This work will maintain safety levels for road users for years to come. It is just part of the huge investment the Highways Agency is making to improve the network in Kent.”

The work on the M20 and M2 will start in the next few weeks and is likely to take around a month in total.
