Operation Stack contraflow rejected by Highways England

Highways England has refused calls for a contraflow on the M20 during Operation Stack due to the risk it would pose to road users.

The idea, put forward by the Freight Transport Association (FTA), was proposed as a short-term solution throughout the summer to alleviate congestion.

Highways England explained the proposal would result in lanes being separated by cones for an unacceptable length of motorway. It also noted that it would make access for emergency vehicles difficult in the event of an accident.
