Highways England asset manager Kevin Bown said:

We understand that there are a lot of closures taking place however it is essential that this work takes place for safety reasons. We have decided to undertake the work overnight when traffic levels are at their lowest and in sections to keep disruption for drivers to a minimum by keeping as much of the carriageway open as possible at any one time. We have also combined other necessary work into these closures wherever possible.

The A2 will be closed, 8pm to 6am Monday to Friday only, between Harbledown near Canterbury to the Eastern Docks roundabout in Dover as follows:
