The A2 is currently closed from its junction with the B255 (Bean) to the A2260 (Ebbsfleet) with delays of at least 30 minutes covering approx 2 miles of the eastbound carriageway. This closure is due to a road traffic collision and Highways England has resources deployed working hard to restore normal conditions as soon as possible. This is impacting traffic leaving Greater London on the A2 and motorists looking to access the A2 from the M25.
For traffic approaching the closure locally, you are advised to expect disruption with extra journey time and may potentially have to re-route your journey.
If travelling towards this area from much farther afield, you may wish to change your strategic route, allow extra travel time and follow guidance from our on-road variable message signs and media.
Traffic is being diverted via local routes, if travelling coastbound please consider using the M20.
Highways England has been working closely with our emergency services colleagues Kent Police, who led the response to this incident.
