Operation Brock has been reinstated on the M20 to help with managing the expected increase in traffic heading out on cross-Channel journeys. Visit Kent continue to work with local partners by lobbying the government for better long-term solutions.
Key dates 2023:
Rail strikes: Wednesday 31st May, Friday 2nd June & Saturday 3rd June
Please check the Southeastern website here for full details of the strike action affecting routes in Kent.
With additional global challenges and rising costs, it’s vital that we, as an industry in Kent, work together along with local authority and infrastructure partners to lessen the impact of potential travel disruption.
So, what does this mean for Kent businesses? This webpage includes details on how we’ll be monitoring the impact of any travel disruption on our businesses and how you can contribute feedback, as well as the work we’re doing to lobby on behalf of the county. We’ve also included details on how we’ll be managing our visitor communications over the summer and useful links to help you prepare and include travel messaging in your own comms. We’ll continue to update this page throughout the summer so please do continue to check back.
While all of this might seem concerning, the pandemic has proved that we are a dynamic and resilient industry. By preparing and working together, we know that the incredible landscapes and experiences we have to offer in the county will shine through!
