The construction of an enormous lorry park nearby Ashford in Kent has been delayed after heavy rain caused work on it to be suspended.
According to the Department for Transport, it was necessary to halt construction of the 1,700 square-metre lorry park so as „to manage surface water levels”.
Kent Live report that construction workers will now need to work longer hours in order to have the lorry park up and running for January 1st. This includes overtime on Sundays.
If the lorry park isn’t ready on time, lorries will be redirected to the Waterbrook Park. However, this site is further from junction 10a of the M20, which could in turn create congestion on the A2070 dual carriageway.
