Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Bumping this as closed again this weekend and next.

Ashford was gridlocked as was A20 between Ashford and J11 in both directions. In one word: AVOID

Posted in the half term chit chat thread, but relevant for the next 6 weeks or so.

More for your return journeys:

The M20 will be closed between Ashford and Maidstone (west bound) from Saturday 9th Feb to mid March from 8pm to 6am each night and there will be a 50mph limit when it's open. There are average speed cameras ready to catch those who do not understand what average means

Average 50 mph plus 10% = 55mph + 2 (that your speedo under reads by) so 57 mph is OK Cool Your risk not mine Little Angel

On Sunday Westbound on the M20 the Average speed cameras each had a sign saying "camera not in use".

@Boris, Last Sunday there were signs that contradicted each other depending on which set of roadworks/contractors had put the signs up, back bottom and elbow methinks

Boris, the coastbound will have lane closures, London (west) bound will be closed. Coming to Ashford you should be ok, going home it may be worth looking at the M2/A2 depending on times - if after 8pm the M20 will be closed from Ashford to Maidstone.

@boredsurfin the problem is that there are roadworks just east of Ashford with the creation of J10a, then on and off works from J9 to J7 in preparation of Operation Brock, then the dumb motorway implementation from J6 to the M26. Around 40 miles of 50mph and snarl ups that we down this way have had to endure for months. Mad Mad Mad

Going home from the tunnel, I headed back towards Folkstone then up the A260 to the M2, worked fine.

Whatever foreign hauliers are being charged to use the UK road network isn't enough, the M2 is a mess, only place I have seen a worse road surface is Detroit.
