Kent: 15ft Hole On The M2
The latest statement from the Highways Agency.
Two lanes are open to traffic in both directions on the M2 between junction 5 (A249) and junction 6 (Faversham) in Kent after a further lane was reopened this morning.
There have been restrictions on the key Kent route since Tuesday (11 February) afternoon, when a Dene Hole appeared in the central reservation.
The Highways Agency and its service providers have been working round the clock to assess the damage and implement a speedy repair.
Traffic has been running past the scene on a reduced number of lanes, using the hard shoulder and Lane 1 Londonbound and on the hard shoulder coastbound. Since 6am this morning lane one of the coastbound carriageway has been open too, restoring two lanes in both directions.
Geotechnical investigations are continuing to find the cause to allow the repair to be safely completed so that the remaining lanes can be reopened to traffic.
Drivers are advised to check conditions before setting out on a journey.
High winds have caused travel chaos for motorists across Kent today.
