Lengthy Delays on M20 Following Serious Accident Near Leybourne

Major Delays on M20 Near Leybourne After Serious Accident

Commuters on the M20 were met with a lengthy delay today after a serious collision brought traffic to a halt. The incident occurred on the eastbound side between Junction 3 for the Addington Interchange and Junction 4 for Leybourne, causing a standstill on the coastbound lanes.

Emergency services were quick to respond, with multiple vehicles on the scene. The cause of the accident is still unknown, and there have been no reports of injuries at this time.

Unfortunately, this is just one of many traffic incidents causing frustration for motorists today. Earlier in the day, heavy congestion was reported on the A249 at Stockbury due to ongoing flyover works that have reduced a busy slip road to just one lane.

According to National Highways, it is estimated that the road will not be cleared until 11pm tonight. It is expected that it will take even longer for traffic to return to normal, with a possible clearance time of after midnight.

Authorities are urging drivers to find alternate routes or to avoid the area altogether if possible. Police are currently investigating the accident and more information will be provided as it becomes available.

In the meantime, commuters are advised to stay patient and cautious while traveling through the affected areas. Stay tuned for more updates on this developing story.
