In response to the incident, traffic diversions have been put in place, guiding motorists through local routes as an alternative to the closed section of the A2. Commuters and travellers who had planned to use this route are advised to allocate extra time for their journeys, as delays are expected.

Authorities urge individuals affected by the road closure to plan, consider alternative routes, and possibly delay their journeys if possible. Safety remains a top priority in situations like these, and taking precautions and following diversion signs can help ensure the well-being of all road users.

The closure and traffic diversion are essential measures to facilitate the safe recovery of the black Mercedes and the restoration of normal traffic flow along the A2. Kent Police and emergency services are actively working to resolve the situation and will provide updates as necessary.
