Second Kent motorway is possible post-Brexit lorry park
M26 earmarked as holding lane for HGVs if customs checks into EU become necessary
Work has started on turning a second motorway in Kent into a potential post-Brexit lorry park to deal with tailbacks to the Channel Tunnel and ports should customs checks have to be introduced.
The M26 will remain closed through the night until next week as Highways England carry out site surveys and then again for more than a month before Christmas to install gates in the central reservation.
